First Lady to speak in Oakland June 14

The White House, which had announced last week that First Lady Michelle Obama would visit the Bay Area on Tuesday, June 14, today specified that she’ll speak at a Democratic National Committee fundraising breakfast in Oakland and then a DNC fundraising luncheon in San Francisco.

The previous morning, she’ll be at the Writers Guild Theater in Los Angeles for an event with a task force consisting of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild and the Writers Guild of America West, focused on portraying the experiences of today’s military families in film, television and digital media. Later Monday, she’ll speak at a DNC luncheon in Pasadena and a DNC dinner in Los Angeles.
