State of the Union tonight

At the Task Force, we are eagerly awaiting President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight. While it will be widely broadcast on television, you can also watch the speech online and get additional data such as tables and graphs during the speech on this page set up by the White House. The page also has information about who will be sitting in First Lady Michelle Obama’s box. Daniel Hernandez, Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz) heroic intern, will be one of the First Lady’s guests during the address. You can learn more about Hernandez, an out gay, Hispanic college student, in this story from Task Force Board Member Hans Johnson.

If you’re wondering what we hope to hear from the president tonight, you can read our post from last week by Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey Raise the Bar, Mr. President.
