President Obama Addresses Organizing For Action As Advocacy Group Gears Up For “Action August”‏


politics_logo

While lawmakers are home for congressional recess, thousands of supporters will be holding events in key districts across the country. It’s all about making sure members of Congress hear directly from the people they represent, on the issues that matter to all of us. We’re calling it Action August—and there will be plenty of ways to get involved, no matter where you live.

OFA

  • We’ll make sure you get all the latest updates on Action August events. Whether something is happening near you or if there’s something easy you can do from your computer, you’ll be the first to know about it.
  • We’re going to be tackling several of the biggest issues throughout the month. At the top of the list, a comprehensive immigration reform bill is facing a tough path through the House—and we’re going to be out there demanding action from our representatives.
  • OFA supporters will be telling the truth about Obamacare, fighting the outright lies about what health care reform means for ordinary Americans.
  • We’ll be calling out the climate deniers who are standing in the way of progress in Washington, and make sure the senators who hold the key votes on gun violence prevention hear from the people who sent them to Congress.
  • And we’ll be fighting attacks on a woman’s health choices wherever they pop up.

Their recess is our opportunity to speak with our elected officials directly about the issues we care about. The more people who step up and get involved, the more likely we’ll all be heard. Commit to being a part of Action August today.
