Organizing for Action is a movement of millions of Americans, coming together to fight for real, lasting change.
We’re community organizers, and we’re proud of it.WATCH THE VIDEO
With more than 250 local chapters around the country, OFA volunteers are building this organization from the ground up, community by community, one conversation at a time—whether that’s on a front porch or on Facebook. We’re committed to finding and training the next generation of great progressive organizers, because at the end of the day, we aren’t the first to fight for progressive change, and we won’t be the last.
This is bigger than just one person or one cause.
The 5 million Americans who’ve taken action with OFA are part of a long line of people who stand up and take on the big fights for social justice, basic fairness, equal rights, and expanding opportunity.
That means turning up the heat on climate change deniers, because the stakes are too high not to act.
It means calling for lawmakers to stop standing in the way of comprehensive immigration reform.
We’re helping people get health coverage, and telling the stories of the millions who are seeing the life-saving benefits of Obamacare.
We’re the ones rallying around the simple principle that love is love and that no one should ever be discriminated against because of who they are or whom they love.
We organize because too often a woman’s health care is debated as a political issue, not as a basic right.
And we believe that anyone who works hard and plays by the rules deserves a fair shot at the American dream.
That kind of progress is never easy. But we’re not here for the easy fights.
In the face of partisan gridlock and powerful, deep-pocketed interests, we refuse to be cynical about what we can accomplish. We have a history of proving the naysayers wrong, and we look forward to doing it again.
