You and Barack should meet



Diane:

From where Barack and I stand, the work you do is invaluable.

With OFA, you've been an instrumental part of the progress we've fought for -- change that's improving people's lives all across the country. You'll be telling your grandkids about the role you played to help get the job done.

OFA is a force for so much progress -- that's because you never stop organizing, and you're not afraid to tell people why you're part of this movement.

Those stories add up, and they motivate others to join you. Share yours with OFA today, and you could come to D.C. next month to meet with Barack.

Here's my story: After I graduated from law school, I thought I had arrived. I was working in a big corporate law firm in a tall building in Chicago. I was getting a big paycheck and paying off my student loans, and my family was so proud of me.

But soon I began to feel like something was missing. I realized that I didn't want to be up in that skyscraper representing corporate clients. I wanted to be down on the ground helping folks in the neighborhood where I had grown up. So I left that law firm job and started working in city government. I eventually wound up running a non-profit organization called Public Allies that trained young people to serve their communities.

My mother thought I was crazy for giving up my prestigious law firm job, but I was happier than I'd been in years. I woke up every morning excited to go to work, inspired by the people I was working with and the causes we were fighting for.

So that's my story, and now we want to hear yours. And do it right away -- tomorrow is the last day to be automatically entered for the chance to have OFA host you for a meeting with Barack.

Go for it:

Thank you,

Michelle

Question, Diane:

I've got a question for you, Diane: What do health care reform, 60 straight months of private sector job growth, and increased high school graduation rates have in common?

They're all examples of the huge amount of progress we've made in the last six years -- and they were all made possible by Democrats like you.

The Republicans have shown us over and over that what they're really committed to is moving backwards. They're still trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act after five years, they're committed to denying things as simple as science, and they refuse to allow a vote on Loretta Lynch's nomination for Attorney General.

It's clear that if we want to see the important work get done -- like making education affordable for our students, and making progress on climate change -- then we've just got to elect more Democrats, Diane. If you can, chip in $10 or more before tomorrow's big fundraising deadline.

Diane --

Tomorrow's your last shot at this.

I hope you'll enter OFA's contest for the chance to meet me backstage next month.

If I have the opportunity, I'd love to say thank you.

The work you do, and have done for years, makes this grassroots movement powerful. You've helped change what it means to get involved and fight for what you believe in.

Don't wait -- make sure you enter for the chance to fly with a guest to D.C. to meet with me:

Diane, sign our card for Senator Reid

DemocratsJoin us.
Diane --

I don't have to tell you that Harry Reid is a great Democrat who has made possible so much of what we've accomplished in the past few years.

But some people don't know about all of the little things the Senate Democratic Leader has done to fight for the American people. I've had a chance to work with Harry on legislation to improve swimming pool safety, which saves children's lives, and on a provision we added to the Affordable Care Act that helps young breast cancer patients and survivors. He's a fighter for everyone -- not just the most rich and powerful members of our society.

I hope you'll take a second to add your name to the card we're putting together to thank Senator Reid for everything he's done -- I know it'd mean a lot to him, Diane.

Harry's been a tireless fighter for improving people's lives, advocating for comprehensive immigration reform, a higher minimum wage, and a cleaner environment, and he knows just as you and I do that we're not done fighting for these issues.

I'm excited to continue working with him over the next two years, and I hope you'll join us and let Harry know you appreciate everything he's done:

A selfie with President Obama?

Organizing for Action
Diane --

I'm a pretty competitive person -- and this is one contest I'd love to win.

Just add your name to be automatically entered to meet the President of the United States.

We're going to fly you and a guest out to Washington, D.C., put you up in a beautiful hotel, and give you the opportunity to have your moment with President Obama.

Just think of all the "likes" you'll get when you post that selfie with President Obama.

Don't pass up this chance -- enter for the chance to win today:

Meet the President in person:

Organizing for Action
Diane --

President Obama is an inspiration to so many grassroots organizers across the country.

That's why I think this is one of the most genuinely awesome things we do -- a grassroots contest to meet the President in person at the OFA Organizing Summit next month.

And it's fitting that it's all about us as organizers. It bears repeating -- this is a movement of millions. But every one of us has a story to tell about how we got inspired to do the work we do. It's so powerful to hear how we were all moved to be part of it.

Those stories are what drive us -- they give us the strength to fight back against the big-money lobbyists and powerful special interests.

That's what this contest is all about: giving folks the chance to tell their stories.

Add your name to be automatically entered for the chance to meet President Obama -- and the flight and hotel for you and a guest are on us.

Not a bad deal.

Go get your name in the hat:
