President Obama’s State of the Union

UPDATE: Activist Melanie Nelkin wrote a guest blog post about what she hopes President Obama will say. Check it out here.

Tonight, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address, reflecting on his first year in office and articulating his priorities for the country in the coming year. While domestic challenges will certainly figure prominently in the president’s speech, 2010 will also be a crucial year for the countries Enough focuses on, and we hope President Obama will signal a plan to make prevention of genocide and mass atrocities a priority of his foreign policy agenda.

What will you be listening for in the president’s speech tonight?

If you mentioned Sudan or Congo, why do you think it’s important for President Obama to mention those conflicts specifically at a time when the U.S. faces so many challenges?

Will you be following the State of the Union from outside of the U.S.? What do you specifically hope President Obama will address?

Tune in to for the live stream of the speech beginning at 9 p.m. EST, and let us know what you think in the comment section below.
