Mark your calendars! Tomorrow at 7:30pm ET, the League of Young Voters will launch their annual #BarackTalk.  This is a conversation about our generation, for our generation. This year,  GenYNot will moderate the conversation and if you didn’t know this will be the biggest State of the Union town hall featuring Rock the Vote, Color of Change, Dream Defenders, Head Count, APALA, BYP100, Generation Progress, Green For All, SEIU, US Students, and Spark Action. #SOTY (State of the Youth)

Hopefully, this will set the stage for expectations young people have for President Barack Obama in #2014. To be apart of the chat, please use the hashtag #BarackTalk. You can also watch the #SOTU (State of the Union) address on the White House website: HERE

Trust me, you won’t want to miss this. Also, after the SOTU address,  the League of Young Voters will premiere a State of the Youth address from Dream Defenders executive director Phillip Agnew. #BarackTalk
