President Bill Clinton
William Jefferson Clinton was the first Democratic president in six decades to be elected twice – first in 1992 and then in 1996. Under his leadership, the country enjoyed the strongest economy in a generation and the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs. After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation with the mission to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote health and wellness, and protect the environment. In addition to his Foundation work, President Clinton has served as the top United Nations envoy for the Indian Ocean tsunami recovery effort and as the UN Special Envoy to Haiti. Today, the Clinton Foundation is supporting economic growth, capacity building, and education in Haiti. President Clinton was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. He and his wife Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have one daughter, Chelsea, and live in Chappaqua, New York.
Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton
Hillary Rodham Clinton served as Secretary of State of the United States from 2009 to 2013, after nearly four decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, First Lady, and a Senator from New York. As First Lady, Clinton led successful bipartisan efforts to improve the adoption and foster care systems, reduce teen pregnancy, establish Early Head Start, and provide health care to millions of children. In 2000, Clinton made history as the first First Lady elected to the United States Senate, where she worked across party lines to expand economic opportunity and access to quality, affordable health care. In her four years as Secretary of State, Clinton played a central role in restoring America’s standing in the world. Her "smart power" approach to foreign policy elevated American diplomacy and she spearheaded progress on many of our greatest national security challenges, from reasserting the United States as a Pacific power to negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East. She pushed the frontiers of human rights and demonstrated that giving women the opportunity to participate fully is vital to the security, stability, and prosperity of all nations. Today, through the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, Clinton continues to build on the nonprofit work she began nearly four decades ago.
