Organizing for America (OFA) is the new DNC grassroots organizing arm – its mission is to build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering communities across the country to bring about our agenda of change. We will be taking a closer look at OFA in coming weeks.
DPVA reports that the new OFA staff is about to launch a listening tour in order to inform the OFA state plan for Virginia. Please visit www.my.barackobama.com in the coming weeks to find a listening tour location near you. If you would like to organize your own listening tour event, please contact OFA State Director, Brandyn Keating, at KeatingB@dnc.org or Field Directror, Million Fikre, at FikreM@dnc.org. Brandyn and Million welcome any questions and ideas you have as OFA gets off the ground in Virginia.
Additionally, OFA is working for health care reform. OFA needs your help as it works to continue to grow the grassroots in Virginia and organizes around the President’s health care agenda. Health care actions will be ongoing in July, with a health care week of action taking place July 20-26. Please get involved.
