Tonight: The State of the Union
President Obama will address the nation with his agenda for 2015.
Tonight, the President will lay out his priorities for the year ahead -- outlining policies to strengthen the middle class and make sure our recovering economy is working for all Americans.
But he's not the only one who's been laying out an agenda for the country. The new Congress has been in session for just two weeks, and in that time, Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell have been busy:
For millions of Americans, 2015 just started with good news
In 20 states, a minimum wage increase just took effect.
On January 1st, millions of hard-working Americans got a much-deserved raise, when minimum wage increases went into effect in 20 states. And several big cities and the District of Columbia will join them later this year.
This progress is the result of hard-fought battles. Without the dedicated work of grassroots organizers across the country, we wouldn't be celebrating this news today.
President Obama: What's at the top of your agenda?
Tell OFA what you're going to fight for in 2015.
As we look ahead to next year, what's the number one thing you want to fight for?
President Obama sent a message to OFA supporters this week asking folks to answer this one-question survey.
Read the message from the President, then tell OFA what you're going to fight for in 2015.

It's a time to chip in and support a great cause too. So many great groups across the country are worth your time and money—I hope you consider OFA among them. Take a moment to invest in this grassroots movement—chip in whatever you can today.
