Build Community

Millions of people across America are coming together to fight for real, lasting change in their communities. Step up, add your voice, and start organizing.

Channeling passion into fighting for lasting change

We are proud community organizers building this movement from the ground up, community by community, one conversation at a time—whether that’s on a front porch or on Facebook. We’re committed to finding and training the next generation of leaders, because at the end of the day, we aren’t the first to fight for progressive change, and we won’t be the last.

We believe in providing anyone who is passionate about a cause the space and opportunity to walk in the door and take action. We believe in empowering people with the tools, training, and support to be more engaged citizens. We are here to help you unleash your power.

We don't just mobilize—we organize

The five million Americans who’ve taken action with OFA are part of a long line of people who refuse to sit silently on the sidelines hoping for the status quo to change. When outdated policies in Washington—or even in our very own communities—are holding America’s potential back, we speak out. We fight for basic fairness, equal rights, consumer protections, and expanding opportunity. That kind of progress has never been easy. But we aren’t here for the easy fights.

We find people where they are

From Philadelphia to Albuquerque, OFA organizers are working to provide opportunities for everyone to get involved, no matter where you come from, what resources you have available, or your experience level.

We develop volunteers into leaders

Over the years, we’ve learned that when you invest in a volunteer-based infrastructure, you build long-term power. That’s why OFA provides free trainings and support to help people become community leaders—because local constituents know what works for their own community, and what doesn’t.

Why we organize

To make real and lasting change, it isn’t enough to mobilize people to take a single action like signing a petition or attending a march. By showing the impact and effectiveness of collective action, we help passionate individuals become the long-term organizers their communities need.
