We hope President Obama will address our top policy priorities – protecting and engaging voters, reforming money in politics, climate change, gun safety, and immigration. We hope this speech will elaborate on last month’s Inaugural Address when he mentioned a number of these priority issues and that he will set forth strong policy proposals on these issues tonight. Use one of our four Bingo boards to note which issues the President does (or does not) address in his speech.
