President Obama will follow up his Friday morning meeting about the fiscal cliff with an afternoon session with leaders from civic groups, following up on meetings he had earlier in the week with leaders of business and liberal-leaning groups.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are set to meet with the president and Vice President Joe Biden at 10:15 a.m. in the Roosevelt Room. They're to speak to cameras at the start of the meeting.

In the afternoon, Obama and Biden will meet with leaders from a range of organizations representing special interest groups including the Human Rights Campaign, the NAACP, AARP and National Council of La Raza, a White House official said.
