  • One year later

    What happened last October, what OFA did to make sure it didn't again.

    Think back at what was happening exactly one year ago today. You're the reason we're not going back.

  • States and cities continue to raise the minimum wage

    Despite a lack of action in Congress, progress is being made around the country.

    Thanks to lawmakers standing in the way in Congress, we haven't raised the federal minimum wage in more than five years. The good news is that states, local governments, and leaders throughout the country aren't waiting.

  • Walking the walk at the St. Louis climate march

    As hundreds of thousands marched all over the world, OFA volunteers brought the fight against climate change to their community.

    OFA's St. Louis chapter partnered with regional climate advocacy organizations to put together one of the city's largest climate events ever.

  • Getting ready for the next big health care moment

    The second open enrollment period for Obamacare starts November 15th—and these volunteers are ready for it.

    With less than two months to go, volunteer leaders gathered in Chicago to talk strategy and trade best practices in a two-day intensive training.

  • What President Obama just told the world about climate change

    We can be a global leader on climate change. Will you fight for it?

    President Obama just took the stage at the U.N. Climate Summit to show the world how the United States is leading in the fight against climate change—and to continue building momentum for global action.

  • Californians fought for clean energy choices—and won

    This is what happened when the other side tried to hamper local efforts to combat climate change.

    This summer, the California State Assembly considered a measure that would have gutted community choice legislation, creating roadblocks to cities and counties that want to do the right thing on climate change by switching to clean energy. That's when supporters in California swung into action.

  • This is about our drinking water

    Really, it's hard to believe anyone could oppose this.

    The Clean Water Act has protected our natural resources, and kept drinking water safe for decades. But—believe it or not—some people actually oppose these common-sense protections, and have spent years and millions of dollars fighting to weaken them.

  • Climate change gives rise to tough times

    Ranching and farming livelihoods are being thrown into instability, insecurity, and uncertainty.

    I wonder if my family farm would have survived for 42 years if today's conditions had existed back then. Ranching has always been a tough job, but these new conditions have made it even more difficult. Ranching has never been a way to make a lot of money even in the best-case scenario, but now it is simply unsustainable.


  • Your name belongs on this

    Want to expand economic opportunity? Go on the record.

    When you go on the record, your support will be listed alongside hundreds of thousands of OFA supporters —that way you, your members of Congress, and anyone with an internet connection can see that you stand for economic opportunity.




  • Add your name—refuse to be cynical

    President Obama put it this way: "Cynicism is a choice—and hope is a better choice."

    It's easy to get discouraged about our chances of making progress. After all, this has been the least productive Congress in modern history, thanks to some extreme voices in the House who seek gridlock.Today, in spite of that, I'm asking you not to be cynical—because that only makes those voices stronger.
