Hey --

A few weeks ago, I shared with you that President Obama would declare 2014 a year of action, acting where he can to build an economy that ensures opportunity for all Americans. And he's already taken steps to achieve that goal in the areas of education and skills, job creation, energy, and raising the minimum wage.

I wanted you to be the first to know about new actions the President will take this week to keep that progress going.

This week, the President will announce new action on manufacturing, infrastructure, and transportation jobs, and a new initiative to ensure everyone who is willing to work hard has a shot at success.

Here's a sneak peek of how the President will use his pen and his phone this week:

On Monday, President Obama will meet with governors from across the country. On Tuesday, he'll announce the winners of two manufacturing institutes. On Wednesday, he'll launch a new competition encouraging new investments to restore our crumbling infrastructure. On Thursday, he'll unveil a new initiative with the private sector to make sure every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to succeed. Here's where the President has already made progress in 2014 to make sure we keep moving forward.

Thanks for getting the word out,


Dan Pfeiffer
Senior Advisor
The White House
