How Can You Respond to the State of the Union?

We're proud to announce Citizen Response -- a new tool that lets you highlight a passage from President Obama's State of the Union Address, tell the President how you're connected to that issue, and then share that specific part with your friends.

The White House is always looking for new ways to hear directly from the public, and we're excited that, for the very first time, you can tell us which parts of the President's address are most important to you and why.

Learn how it works, watch the State of the Union, and then submit your own Citizen Response by visiting following the speech.
