The League of Young Voters to Host State of the Union #BarackTalk Tonight!
Tonight is one of the most important nights in politics as America prepares for the highly-anticipated State of the Union Address from President Obama. In light of this event, non-profit youth civic advocacy organization the League of Young Voters, will be hosting a #BarackTalk Twitter Townhall. This will be a digital, interactive discussion between the League and additional civic engagement groups on topics anticipated for discussion during the State of the Union. These topics include the war on drugs, gun violence, voter suppression, education, incarceration and the economy.After the State of the Union, the League will deliver its first "State of the Youth Address" which details the urban, rising American electorate’s thoughts on their current standing in the 2014 American political landscape. This will be available on the League's YouTube channel: Youtube.com/99ProblemsDotOrg.It's great to see the League engage the urban American youth on issues that matter and affect their communities. Tune in to the online conversation tonight at 7:30 pm ET/4:30 pm PT by following the League on Twitter @TheLeague99.
