People’s State of the Union

Tue February 7, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

People's State of the Union

RegisterOn Tuesday, February 7, join CODEPINK Congress for the next Capitol Calling Party – our People’s State of the Union.

An hour before President Biden delivers his State of the Union address, CODEPINK Congress will deliver our own non-partisan People’s State of the Union. Join us as we discuss whether it’s time–in the interests of world peace and justice– to wish President Biden a happy retirement come 2024.

Yes, let’s wrestle with the tough questions:

How do progressives evaluate Biden’s two years in office? Should we welcome a primary challenge to Biden? Who is sitting on the back bench? Is Trump finished? Is DeSantis worse? As a non-profit, CODEPINK will not endorse political candidates, but neither shall we refrain from discussing high stakes politics.
