• Welcome to our movement

    We've got a lot of ground to cover over the next four months -- and as Michigan's training director, it's my job to make sure each and every volunteer is ready to have the maximum impact in their hometown between now and Election Day.

    That's why I wanted to invite you to come out and learn a little more about how you can join Organizing for America in getting out the vote for President Obama and Michigan Democrats.

    We're hosting welcome parties at our offices across the state this Wednesday and Saturday -- and if you're new to organizing, we'll get you off to a good start. We'll go over the basics of making calls and knocking on doors and share some resources that will help you talk about the issues.

    This election is going to be really close -- so now's the time to step up and lead this movement where you live. If we don't each give it our all, we risk losing a whole lot: health care reform, college affordability, jobs for our firefighters and schoolteachers -- the list goes on and on.

    RSVP now for a welcome party, and bring a friend along, too.
