On the summer solstice—the longest day of the year—hundreds of clean energy supporters across the country got together to inform people of the facts on solar power and encourage them to be a part of the growing movement.

This is about basic dignity—add your name if you agree
It's about time that the law reflects that across the country.
The future of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which passed the Senate last year, is in House Speaker John Boehner's hands—and his strategy is to refuse to call a vote, in what appears to be a desperate attempt to stop the wave of progress toward LGBT equality.
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)

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

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.
Add your name—fight back against the polluters and special interests
This isn't an accident. It's their strategy.
Some of the reaction to the President's climate plan from the other side this week has seemed straight-up bonkers. This would all be kind of funny, too, if the opposition wasn't backed with a whole boatload of cash.
