Organizing For America :O)

Lacy —

On Tuesday, January 25th, President Obama will deliver his second State of the Union address.

This speech will mark the start of a new chapter for this movement. 2011 will be a year of building on our past work for a stronger economy and a brighter future, while also protecting the progress we’ve made reforming our health insurance system, reining in the big banks on Wall Street, and more.

To help get the word out about the President’s vision for the next year, OFA volunteers will be holding State of the Union watch parties and strategy sessions across the country — and if we’re going to have enough events in enough places, we’ll need your help.

Will you host a State of the Union watch party?

Host a State of the Union watch party — get started now.

The President’s speech will be a great chance for us all to get fired up about jobs, health reform, and everything else 2011 has in store. That means it’s important that we have as many folks watching in as many communities as possible — which is why we need you to host a State of the Union watch party, including a strategy session for planning local action.

Hosting an OFA event has never been easier. You can hold your party at home, or you can use a community space if local regulations allow it. All you have to do is fill out a quick form, and we’ll set up the online event and send you everything you need to do the rest.

I’m hoping, as one of our top supporters, that you’ll step up and give folks in your neighborhood a place to watch the speech together and help plan what comes next for defending our progress on health reform and more.

Sign up here to host a State of the Union watch party and strategy session on Tuesday, January 25th:
