"Let’s make this a year of action"

President Obama delivered his fifth State of the Union address to Congress this week, and on Wednesday, he sent a message to OFA supporters asking them to help make 2014 a year of action.

Read his message:

I know this can be a breakthrough year for America.

That's because people like you and organizations like OFA are working hard to keep us moving forward.

I'm committed to doing my part here in Washington. But we all know there's so much more we can get done if lawmakers on Capitol Hill join us in getting to work.

Join me in calling on Congress to make 2014 a year of action—add your name today to say you'll fight for that goal with OFA.

Washington could learn a lot from some of the great work going on in the states right now to expand opportunity for all.

Because of local leaders and a whole lot of community organizing, we've seen raises in the minimum wage so more of our workers can earn a living wage. We've seen local governments taking strides to make sure women earn the same as men, and find new ways to train workers and create good-paying jobs.

That's the kind of action we need from Washington in 2014. People like you, the people willing to roll up their sleeves and get to work, are the reason America is on its way back.

Imagine what we can get done if Congress decides to join in.
Let's follow the President's lead and make 2014 a year of action.

I'm in
