A member of my retirement community held a meeting today to organize a local group for Organizing for Action. I’ve been on an OFA email list for years, but this is the first time I’ve been to a meeting to talk about Doing Something.
After the meeting, I went to the OFA website (http://www.ofa.us, not .org – the .org will take you to an animal welfare group). There I found elements of an action network, so I will check it more often. I learned that someone nearby is organizing for an event on April 1 to support Obamacare. That’s definitely a march that I would attend, pussyhat and all.
If you want to browse their website, I’ve put ilnks to it above and in the right hand column. Consider signing up and choosing issues that you care most about. Ideally we’ll get email notices to prompt us to write letters or attend a march in support of that issue.
I’d love to know how you connect to the Resistance. Twitter? Facebook? Blogs? Email? Good old-fashioned phone tree?
