President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address on January 12, 2016 at 9PM ET.
Watch as he reflects on the road we’ve traveled in the last seven years.
Together, We Make Change Happen
When President Obama took office seven years ago, we were involved in two wars, losing over 800,000 jobs a month, and weathering the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. But, with his leadership and the determination of the American people, we have made extraordinary progress on the path to a stronger country and a brighter future.
We’ve proven that, together, we can overcome great challenges.
In his last State of the Union, President Obama will lay out the ways that we, as the American people, can once again come together in pursuit of a country worthy of generations to come.
Building a New Foundation for Prosperity
Seven years ago, President Obama took office amidst worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. But since that time, thanks to the hard work of the American people, we have emerged from that crisis stronger. From rescuing the auto industry to creating unprecedented job growth, the President continues to work on building an economic foundation that works for the middle class and those fighting to join it.
What We’ve Accomplished Together
Together, we’ve increased jobs, taken state-by-state and city-by-city actions to raise the minimum wage and invest in education, fought for working families, and made our tax system fairer. View our economic record so far to get inspired on what’s to come.

An Historic Commitment to Protect our Planet
No challenge poses a greater threat to our children, our planet, and future generations than climate change. Under President Obama’s leadership we have met that challenge and led the international community and world leaders to a global agreement to combat climate change, while cutting pollution from power plants, vehicles, and agriculture here at home and making the largest investment in renewable energy in our nation’s history.
