With a focus on making the White House inclusive and accessible to its citizens, the Office of Public Engagement is responsible for creating and coordinating direct dialogue between the Biden-Harris administration and the diverse American public.
The Office of Public Engagement works at the local, state, and national levels to ensure community leaders, diverse perspectives, and new voices all have the opportunity to inform the work of the President. Creating and maintaining a two-way dialogue between the administration and communities across the nation ensures that voices are heard and that concerns can be translated into action across the administration.
Through outreach, communication, public events, and official announcements from the administration and the various departments of the Executive Office of the President, the Office of Public Engagement removes obstacles and barriers and creates opportunities to improve public awareness and involvement in the work of the Biden-Harris administration.
Working alongside the citizens who want a government that works and that they can be a part of, the Office of Public Engagement helps build and maintain the transparent, responsible, and accountable government President Biden and Vice President Harris have promised.
President Biden has appointed Rep. Cedric Richmond to serve as Senior Advisor and Director of the Office of Public Engagement.
