Presidential Proclamations

Presidential Proclamations:

  • are statements of policy issued by the President on a matter of public policy
  • are also used ceremonially by Presidents to honor a group or situation, or to call attention to certain issues or events. (These will be the ones that I will post here on this page - the proclamations and press releases that call attention to specific holidays and observances.)
  • do not have the force of law, unless they are authorized by Congress
  • are posted on the White House Website in the Briefing Room / Press Office section, under Presidential Actions - Proclamations
  • will be posted on this page with the most recent one at the top.
