#BarackTalk 2012: Join the online watch party and share your reaction with the White House

Tonight we’re excited to partner with our friends at the League of Young Voters, Sierra Student Coalition, Green for All, AllHipHop.com and others for #BarackTalk 2012: a global viewing party & interactive panel discussion for tonight’s State of the Union address!

Tune in live at 7:30pm ET, and then let us know what you thought of the President’s speech by texting “SOTU + your reaction” to 228466.

You can also join the conversation in real-time by following @EnergyAction and #BarackTalk on Twitter, and tweeting your thoughts about the speech and questions for the panelists.
