First Lady Michelle Obama will be in the city later today touting the importance of higher education.

She will visit the headquarters of Global Kids, Inc., a youth education nonprofit.

The First Lady met two of the organization's summer students at a Department of Education event in Washington last month.

She will also give a speech at the League of United Latin American Citizens convention, where she will be introduced by Jennifer Lopez.

Also on the schedule is a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.
