Moms of all political leanings watching the State of the Union tonight will undoubtedly have particular issues they are hoping to hear in the president address. The group MomsRising.org has released its own State of the Union Bingo game card, available for those who register on the organization’s site. 

According to a press release from the group, “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 sippy cup in a cheer!”

According to the MomsRising.org website, the group focuses on grassroots campaigns, started by moms, to help drive legislation and corporate action for issues that affect mothers and families. Some of the organization’s current campaigns include building better maternity and paternity leave policies, excluding toxic chemicals from children’s toys, and obtaining fair wages for women.

What can you expect to see on the Bingo card? A sampling of squares includes topics such as: maternity leave, gun legislation, affordable child care, and fair pay. The group has even left the center square of the five-by-five square board open for a “Your Choice” entry.
