  • 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.

  • It’s time to bring home the bacon

    The Bacon Awards were held in Kansas City for employers who understand the need to raise the minimum wage.

    What better way for the land of barbecue and bacon to spotlight the issue and show our appreciation for business owners who fairly compensate their employees, than with awards made from actual bacon?


  • This is wrong, and this fight needs you

    These lawmakers are playing politics, and their actions are hurting people.

    One of the ways the Affordable Care Act provides better access to health care is by expanding Medicaid for millions of Americans. Two dozen states refused to do it, even though it could help their own people—all because they don't like Obamacare.

  • Your representative might need one of these postcards

    It's a quick, easy thing to do—but this is an action that counts.

    Since the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform, inaction in the House has cost our country nearly $12 billion. We know that these messages get seen by representatives and their staff. The more messages they get, the more momentum we'll build.

  • The House's inaction on comprehensive immigration reform is hurting my business

    Sharifa Elaraj, a small-business owner, talks about how the House's inaction is costing her.

    I joined this fight because as an immigrant and as an attorney, I believe that our undocumented brothers and sisters deserve a chance at the American dream, and as a small-business owner I know that every day we wait to fix our broken system is another day we threaten our communities’ small-business growth.

  • This really gets my goat

    When asked about climate change, here's what Marco Rubio said.

    For Senator Rubio's home state of Florida, this isn't an academic question. Miami is one of the American cities most vulnerable to rising sea levels—they've already risen eight inches since 1870, and it's speeding up. A recent report said they could rise another two feet by 2060.Despite all that, Senator Rubio denies the science behind climate change.
