I'll call you, maybe?

Organizing for Action
Diane --

I have a confession: I'm a millennial and I use my phone for nearly everything -- just not usually for phone calls. (I know -- I'm a walking stereotype.)

But it's part of my job at OFA to share the big news when someone wins a contest, so I have to brush up on my conversation skills before the contest ends.

People don't always believe me at first -- I've been accused of being a prank caller. But I promise: The opportunity to meet President Obama is as real as it gets.

Add your name now to enter for a chance for you and a friend to meet President Obama at OFA's event in Washington, D.C., this summer.

This movement, led by President Obama and organizers like you, has made monumental progress, including health care reform, marriage equality, and huge steps in the fight against climate change. Now is your chance to tell the Commander-in-Chief -- in person -- which piece of that progress means the most to you.

I can't wait to call you with the good news. Don't let this opportunity pass you by -- enter today to win:

Talk soon?

Re: I want to meet you



Diane --

President Obama had a message for OFA supporters over the weekend, and I want to make sure you hear from him. Check out what he had to say below.

Getting to meet the President at OFA's event in Washington, D.C., over the summer is a big deal. Enter today:

---- ORIGINAL MESSAGE ----

Diane --

If the past seven years have confirmed anything, it's that real, lasting change doesn't happen as the result of one person's actions -- it takes all of us working together and speaking up. When communities unite -- when folks stand with their neighbors and make their voices heard -- the results are pretty incredible.

I'm thankful for all we've accomplished together -- for how you've faced down the cynicism, and kept up the fight for change. The progress we've made on everything from climate change to job growth is worth celebrating. I hope you're thankful too -- and I want to hear from you.

Add your name now and you'll be automatically entered to meet me at OFA's event in Washington, D.C., this summer.

One of the best parts of my job is getting to talk with people like you, folks who do the hard work of active citizenship -- knocking on doors and having important conversations with friends about the issues that matter to all of us. Those actions add up, and taken together, they're how we make change.

Reflecting on all we've achieved together is important. Looking back in gratitude helps us move forward -- and there's plenty of work ahead.

Calling your senator and speaking up is a great opportunity to make your voice heard on this issue. We can't back down now.

I hope we get the chance to meet this summer in Washington, D.C.:

https://my.barackobama.com/Enter-For-Your-Chance

Thanks,

Barack Obama

News you can share: solar power is saving lives, new overtime rules, and a "judicial emergency"

Organizing for Action


Diane, you're one of the best messengers we've got in this movement. Here's some recommended reading that's easy to share.

Solar power is already saving lives in the US. Here's how.
Vox // David Roberts


It's worth stepping back occasionally and reminding ourselves of the original and still greatest benefit of solar: namely, that it displaces fossil fuel electricity. And burning fossil fuels to create electricity kills people, so displacing fossil fuel power directly saves lives. Now a new study has taken a crack at quantifying the doesn't-kill-people benefits of US solar.

President Obama to Finalize Overhaul of Overtime Rule, Boosting Pay for 4.2M Workers
ABC News // John Parkinson


The Obama administration is moving to finalize changes to double the salary threshold of workers entitled to overtime wages. The Department of Labor is set to settle its overtime protections for workers on Wednesday, extending overtime to an estimated 4.2 million additional workers who are not currently eligible under federal law. The administration expects the action to increase wages for workers by $12 billion over the next decade.

Overtime pay: What you need to know about the new rule
USA Today // Paul Davidson


The Labor Department on Wednesday finalized a new rule that's expected to make an additional 4.2 million salaried workers eligible for overtime pay. The rule, intended to boost low and middle-income wages that largely have stagnated, takes effect December 1. Economics reporter Paul Davidson's provides answers to some common questions.

Obamacare brings record low for US health uninsured rate
CNBC // Dan Mangan


How low can Obamacare go? Fewer than 1 in 10 Americans lacked health insurance in 2015, the first time ever in the nation's history that the uninsured rate has fallen so low, and a clear sign of Obamacare's impact. The U.S. uninsurance rate fell to 9.1 percent last year, according to data released Tuesday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

April breaks global temperature record, marking seven months of new highs
The Guardian // Michael Slezak


Last month was the hottest April on record globally - and the seventh month in a row to have broken global temperature records. The latest figures smashed the previous record for April by the largest margin ever recorded. It makes three months in a row that the monthly record has been broken by the largest margin ever, and seven months in a row that are at least 1C above the 1951-80 mean for that month. When the string of record-smashing months started in February, scientists began talking about a "climate emergency".

It's Not Just Merrick Garland: Republicans Are Blocking So Many Nominees It's Caused a Judicial Emergency
The Daily Beast // Jay Michaelson


The judicial confirmation rate under the Republican-controlled Senate is less than half of what it was when Democrats held power under George W. Bush. There are so few judges that it's hurting the country. It's not just Merrick Garland--this Senate isn't confirming anybody.
