  • Something very exciting is about to happen

    We're getting incredibly close to an amazing grassroots milestone.

    I don't care how much money or power the special interests on the other side have. They don't have a movement. To me, that's what reaching a milestone like this one represents: 500,000 people who are there to get your back in this fight.

  • Take a stand for working families

    The White House Summit on Working Families is on Monday—and you can participate.

    Too often workplace policies don’t reflect the realities of today’s families, placing unfair limits on hard-working Americans and holding them back from success. It’s time to change that—and you should be a part of the conversation.

  • An update on comprehensive immigration reform

    (Spoiler Alert: Speaker Boehner is still blocking progress, and the cost of inaction continues to grow)

    There’s been a lot of discussion recently about the future of the fight for comprehensive immigration reform. But the path forward is still the same—and that path is still blocked directly by Speaker John Boehner in the House of Representatives.

  • Detrimental droughts threaten California agriculture

    An olive grower is seeing the impacts of climate change firsthand.

    The talk among us farmers has been echoed by many more around the country: Climate change is causing our crops to suffer, and the challenges it poses are making it harder to sustain California’s growing population.

  • A college education shouldn't put you in crushing debt

    It's time to rein in student loan debt—do you agree?

    A college education is still one of the most important investments you can make for your future. But more students than ever before are forced to take out loans to go to college—71 percent of undergraduates in 2012 left school with a diploma and debt, to the tune of nearly $30,000 per person. And a third of Federal Direct student loan dollars are in default, deferment, or forbearance.

    Add your name and fight for a fair way to reduce the burden of student loan debt

  • Volunteers mobilize to support new EPA regulations

    The President is taking historic action to make sure our children and communities have a healthy future—and volunteers are taking action to help get the word out.

    Check out highlights from OFA's day of action supporting the President's plan to curb carbon pollution.

  • You could be an OFA Fellow

    Through my work with OFA, I've been able to get involved in the fights that really matter to me.

    A year ago, I didn't know I'd be a grassroots organizer today. But thanks to the OFA fellowship program, here I am, so much better prepared to make a difference on the issues I care about.

  • This is huge

    Climate change activists have fought for years for EPA standards on carbon pollution—and this week President Obama is making them a reality.

    Announcements like this are why we all do this work. It's proof that grassroots organizing really does pay off.

  • You could win a chance to meet James Taylor

    Get your name in the running to fly to Chicago next month to be at this concert.

    When James Taylor plays an outdoor concert in Chicago next month, two VIP backstage tickets will be reserved for OFA supporters like you.


  • “I've never done anything so rewarding”

    Meet Ashly—an OFA volunteer turned OFA fellow.

    When I got the opportunity to be an OFA fellow, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and further my development with OFA’s training intensive programs and hands-on approach. And I was so right. It has been an amazing experience.
