WASHINGTON (AP) — Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton has signed on to help promote President Barack Obama's inaugural kick-off event to get Americans across the country engaged in serving their communities.
The 32-year-old is being named honorary chair of the president's National Day of Service and plans to headline its summit on the National Mall Saturday. Obama is calling for Americans to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the holiday weekend celebrating his birthday by agreeing to serve their communities.
Clinton was often seen but not heard as a youth growing up in the White House, but increasingly has making her public voice heard in recent years. She's a special correspondent for NBC News and has spoken out in support of gay marriage and her mother's 2008 presidential campaign.
