With tonight's State of the Union address just a few hours away, nonprofit organizations are wondering what news -- good or bad -- they will receive from President Obama. Writing in today's Nonprofit Quarterly, Rick Cohen reviews the already-delivered State of State speeches of 2014 and ponders whether "these state addresses presage anything that nonprofits might hear in President Obama's State of the Union."
Meanwhile, the Miami Herald is reporting that the nonprofit group, One Miami, is organizing a watch party for the president's address. The event will be attended by nonprofit groups in South Florida. The groups are hoping President Obama will address immigration reform and the minimum wage in his speech. They also hope to find out what the president will propose to deal with the nation's growing income gap.
