The Miami speech was given at UM’s Watsco center with about 1,000 people in attendance, with featured speakers Kelly Rowland and comedian Keegan-Michael Key.

The crowd at the event, mostly university of Miami students was eager to listen to Obama speak and showed huge excitement whenever her name was mentioned. She gave an anecdote about her father who never missed an election and his excitement to giving his vote.

“Take their power back.” although the organization is nonpartisan, she encouraged getting everyone you know registered and to the polls, especially if your fed up with your representation. The crowd was radiant and full of young people excited about civil engagement.
