News Entries in organizing

  • “I've never done anything so rewarding”

    Meet Ashly—an OFA volunteer turned OFA fellow.

    When I got the opportunity to be an OFA fellow, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and further my development with OFA’s training intensive programs and hands-on approach. And I was so right. It has been an amazing experience.

  • It’s time to bring home the bacon

    The Bacon Awards were held in Kansas City for employers who understand the need to raise the minimum wage.

    What better way for the land of barbecue and bacon to spotlight the issue and show our appreciation for business owners who fairly compensate their employees, than with awards made from actual bacon?


  • Enough of this inaction

    Volunteers tell representatives in the House to lead on comprehensive immigration reform.

    Congress sacrifices up to $37 million dollars a day, simply by refusing to act on a bill that has already passed with bipartisan support in the Senate. That's unacceptable—and that's why OFA volunteers took action in 34 key districts on Saturday.

  • OFA volunteers honored as White House Champions of Change

    Volunteers from Nevada and Arizona were honored by the White House earlier this month as two grassroots leaders taking critical steps in their communities to reduce gun violence.

    Being honored by the White House is no small recognition—but if you ask Pam Simon or Teresa Crawford what it feels like to be named a Champion of Change, they'll be the first to say this award is about their community, not them.

  • Mobilizing the nation for immigration reform

    OFA is fighting to stop Congress's inaction on comprehensive immigration reform.

    Supporters of immigration reform are organizing on the phone, on the ground, and on the airwaves, calling on the House to take action.

  • Meet the next generation of organizers

    Introducing the Organizer Academy.

    Some of the most passionate new organizers are meeting up this month to hone their skills—and they are having a great time doing it. Take a minute and meet the next generation of organizers.

  • Turning worry into action

    The destruction wrought by climate change is pretty scary.

    I've studied the scientific evidence presented by those that deny climate change and so far found none of their arguments reasonable.

  • The work we do matters

    Here is just one of the thousands of ways OFA supporters worked to make health reform successful.

    Learn more about how OFA-Ohio volunteers worked with Get Covered America to get the word out about the new health insurance marketplace.


  • Get ready, OFA: #ActionSummit starts Tuesday

    President Obama will speak to volunteers from across the country about organizing--and the work left to do on health care reform.

    Grassroots leaders, volunteers, and OFA founders will be joined by President Obama to discuss organizing and how to keep making change happen.
