Popcorn and BINGO with the President... all from the comfort of your living room!

Want in?

This Tuesday night (March 1st) at 9pm ET / 6pm PT President Joe Biden will be giving the 2022 State of the Union (SOTU). In order to make watching fun and powerful, we've created a BINGO card to help you track and celebrate as the issues of greatest concern to women, moms, parents, children, and families are covered in the speech.  

*Gather your people (your people can be just your cat, or your child, or your neighbor without a TV) and have a virtual party with us on Tuesday night.

 *GET THE BINGO CARD HERE: Click here to download a PDF of your State of the Union BINGO card! (When you click, a PDF of the BINGO card will be downloaded to your computer or phone. So if you don’t see the BINGO card right away, then check your download folder.  Feel free to print out the PDF and use it!).

We'll also be playing BINGO in real time on Twitter with @MomsRising and @MamásConPoder and using the hashtags #WomensSOTU and #CareCantWait Join us!

Why BINGO?  Well, people love it. #WomensSOTU BINGO is now an annual tradition because people have fun while tracking the issues and celebrating the wins that the Biden Harris Administration has moved forward in their first year. 

In fact, the BINGO card is a great, fun way to hang out with your kids and family during the speech, to check off some important victories —and also to track how the issues that are important to women, moms, dads, kids, and families make it onto center stage during the State of the Union. We'll be doing BINGO on issues like access to healthcare, child care, paid family and medical leave, immigrant rights, and other care infrastructure policies. And we'll also be tracking standing ovations, laughs, and even scowls! It'll be fun!

HOW TO BINGO?- Here's how it works: Every time the President talks about one of the issues on the card, you can mark it down on the BINGO card--and maybe even raise a juice box or a sippy cup in a cheer! 

It's also more than a game! It's not just about fun (although we're all for fun!), playing BINGO is also about standing up and being counted! We’ve let our leaders and the media know that moms, dads, kids, and even cats and dogs are watching and listening carefully to what they say about the issues we prioritize. 

So, get your State of the Union BINGO party on! You can even use it as a fun "teachable" moment with your kids about the importance of civic participation.  

For our part, we can't wait to play the game--to sit down and tally up the marks on our BINGO cards--and to keep letting leaders and the media know that moms, dads, and everyone who cares about children and families are paying attention, and that our voices and our votes matter. Play in real time with us on Twitter too to amplify all our voices via the hashtags #WomensSOTU and #CareCantWait.  More details below.
