First Lady Jill Biden, upcoming visit to Massachusetts

First Lady Jill Biden is scheduled to visit and speak Friday at the second day of the American Federation of Teachers’ national convention at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Her first stop was in nearby Charlestown, where she received a tour of Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Mass. General Hospital program to help veterans and their families with the physical and emotional scars from war.

Biden met with families who have used Home Base and is hoping other parts of the country will create similar solutions for veterans and their families.

“Military families serve too,” the First Lady said. “And, you know, we have to remember that. They’re right alongside of their military member in all aspects.”

Biden is also scheduled to join U.S. Labor Secretary and former Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to visit Eversource Station 99 and meet with students interning for the utility company through a Bunker Hill Community College partnership.

Biden was expected to fly to Nantucket Friday afternoon and slated to attend another Democratic National Committee finance event on the island on Saturday.
