  • Campus Organizing Summit - San Francisco: Learning beyond the classroom

    Following the most recent OFA Campus Organizing Summit, the latest crew of student organizers is fired up and ready to bring change to their communities.

    College campuses bring together students from all different backgrounds to learn from, engage with, and challenge one another—making them ideal settings for starting important conversations and organizing movements.

    That’s why OFA is training college students to turn their passion into action—it's our young people that will carry the torch for the fights to come. Empowering them with the tools and resources to start making a difference in their communities is vital to creating lasting change and will help to sustain this movement for years to come.

    Here's how the Campus Organizing Summit that just wrapped in San Francisco is another step toward doing just that.

  • Changing the conversation on climate

    You don’t have to be a policy expert to make a difference. OFA volunteers are learning to make an impact in their own communities.
