On August 16th, 2021, portions of Downtown San Jose streets were renamed Barack Obama Boulevard. The renaming was initiated by the Barack Obama Boulevard Committee supported by Mayor Liccardo and Vice Mayor Jones. The renaming will honor the service, leadership, and legacy of the 44th president.
The celebration began with a March to the SAP center in downtown San Jose where the unveiling of one renaming would take place. The event included speeches from prominent community leaders young and old. Over 100 community members were in attendance to celebrate the work that has been done by resilient committee members and of our 44th president.
