Be a part of this - add your name

Diane --

When I was just getting my start as an organizer on the south side of Chicago, things weren't easy. Sometimes I called a meeting, and nobody showed up.

But with patience and persistence, folks who lived in the community started to come around. Soon we were spending hours together, talking about the problems they saw and going over the best ways to tackle them.

The more active and engaged they became, the easier it was to affect the change that we sought. I believe that same concept applies today. Organizing is the building block of everything great we've accomplished.

Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities -- and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. If you want to be a part of it -- add your name.

I'm so proud of the work you've accomplished -- and even a little envious at how much better equipped organizers are today than I was -- but there's still much more to do.

Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond -- one way to show your support is to add your name:


Let's get to work,

Barack Obama
