• President Obama to OFA supporters: "I'm asking you to speak up"

    President Obama sent this message to supporters today, asking them to get involved with Action August and fight for the issues that matter:

    Friend—

    There is only so much I can do on my own.


    The special interests know it, and they're counting on you to be silent on gun violence and climate change. They hope you're not paying attention to creating jobs or fixing our broken immigration system.

    And they plan to make the loudest noise when your members of Congress come home for August recess.

    I'm counting on you to be just as vocal—to make sure the agenda that Americans voted for last year is front and center.

    Say you'll do at least one thing as part of OFA's Action August in your community, no matter where you live.

    I know it's easy to get frustrated by the pace of progress.

    But it's not a reason to sit back and do nothing—our system only works if you play your part.

    If you don't let your representatives know where you stand in August, we risk losing an important battle on your home turf.

    So I'm asking you to speak up—commit to do at least one thing in your community during Action August

    Thanks,
    Barack

    Join Action August
