First Lady Michelle Obama will visit the Justice Department next week as part of her continued outreach to government agencies.

Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama will thank DOJ employees for “their tireless work upholding our nation’s laws and securing the rights of our citizens,” according to the White House.

Obama started her so-called “listening tour” in February 2009 and has so far visited the Agriculture Department; the Department of Education; the Interior Department; the Department of Housing and Urban Development; the Department of Homeland Security; and Environmental Protection Agency.
