The American Bar Association has announced that Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive its highest award—the ABA Medal.

The former U.S. secretary of state and Yale Law School graduate will be presented with the award on Aug. 12 at the ABA’s annual meeting in San Francisco.

“For Hillary Clinton’s immense accomplishments as a lawyer, the strides she made for women both professionally and civically, and for promoting the interests of the U.S. and human rights abroad, she not only deserves this honor, but also the gratitude of the legal profession and the nation,” said ABA President Laurel G.

Too Small to Fail: A Joint Initiative of Clinton Foundation and Next Generation

A Message From Hillary Clinton and Too Small to Fail

Dear Still4Hill,

Since launching Too Small to Fail last week, we’ve heard from thousands of parents, business and community leaders, teachers, and doctors across the country who want to be a part of this national effort. This initiative is exciting to so many because it promises easy to understand, evidence-based guidance to help us all contribute to the success of young children in America, regardless of which neighborhoods they live in or what languages they speak at home.

Here’s what some of you said on our Facebook page:

“I am glad your focus is on children and families in America. To fight poverty, crime, and unemployment, we need awareness of the impact of family stress and better care at the very beginning of life for children. Thank you!” — Donna J.

“As an early childhood education professional, I am very excited to see this initiative. Putting all our research into real action is so important, and it has been a ‘missing link’ for many of us who do this work. Wonderful!” — Mary M.

This summer, we will start sending out a weekly newsletter with updates and information on the latest research, as well as tips for parents, communities and businesses to get engaged. Look for new research about the first years of children’s lives, including on such topics as the impact of hardship and instability on children’s brain development and health, as well as recent early scientific studies suggesting that taking the right amount of folic acid during pregnancy may help to prevent autism. We will also share specific resources that can help you take small but important steps to ensure that your own children, or those in your communities, begin life with the building blocks for success in school and beyond.

We need your help in order for Too Small to Fail to be successful. Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter, encourage everyone you know to sign up at TooSmall.org, and then put what you learn to use in your family and community. Together, we can make a better life for America’s children.

Jun 26, 2013 | President Clinton and Secretary Clinton | New York, NY  | Statement

By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union. We are also encouraged that marriage equality may soon return to California. We applaud the hard work of the advocates who have fought so relentlessly for this day, and congratulate Edie Windsor on her historic victory.

Statement by President and Secretary Clinton on today’s Voting Rights Act decision

Jun 25, 2013 | President Clinton | New York, NY  | Statement

We are disappointed in today’s decision striking at the heart of the Voting Rights Act.  For over four decades the Act has succeeded in overcoming unconstitutional barriers to voting, and has demonstrated its central role in protecting this essential freedom.  We strongly urge Congress to put aside partisanship and politics, as it did in 2006, and promptly pass legislation to replace those portions of the Act struck down today.

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will head a lineup of luminaries taking the stage at the University at Buffalo for its 2013-14 Distinguished Speakers Series.

The series, which will begin its 27th season this fall, also will feature popular author and physicist Michio Kaku, physician and television journalist Sanjay Gupta, civil rights leaders Myrlie Evers-Williams and Mary Frances Berry, “eclectic detective” Malcolm Gladwell and magician and endurance performer David Blaine.

All programs will begin at 8 p.m. in Alumni Arena or the Center for the Arts on the North Campus.


Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton: Oct. 23, Alumni Arena.

Hillary Rodham Clinton served as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her “smart power” approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century.  Clinton played a central role in restoring America’s standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East.  Earlier, as First Lady and senator from New York, she traveled to more than 80 countries as a champion of human rights, democracy and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero.  In her historic campaign for president, Clinton won 18 million votes.

Speaking to a crowd of 4,000 last night at Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA, Hillary Clinton called Edward Snowden’s absconding with four laptops containing sensitive information outrageous and China’s decision to allow him to flee detrimental to our complex relationship with that government.


Delivering a lecture sponsored by the Whizin Center for Continuing Education,  American Jewish University, she noted that diplomacy would be easy if the only parties we spoke to were our friends.  She cited the challenges of building relationships with rivals as an area where women leaders can make a special contribution and that the key is in recognizing and celebrating our common humanity.

Asked about her decision to run for president, she responded that she is happy to have made that contribution.  As secretary of state she was estranged from domestic issues  for four years  but often used her experience in politics to prod foreign leaders to trust increased democracy.   She  noted that the U.S. needs to exemplify how problems can be solved  in bipartisan ways.

The audience waited more than 45 minutes beyond the scheduled starting time, but according to the tweets that emanated from the auditorium patience prevailed.   Hillary Clinton is always worth the wait.  Here are a few twitpics.
