Organizing for America has an ambitious plan to reach out to voters this election season and—through the Vote 2010 campaign—reconnect with the millions of people who were inspired to participate in the political process for the first time in 2008.
OFA is building on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering communities across the country to get involved in the issues they care most about, and fight for candidates who will stand with the President.
With the Organizing for America App for iPhone and iPad, you can stay up to date—and involved—no matter where you are.
Using the Call Congress feature, you can make your voice heard on the issues that matter to you. Want to do more? Find your local events in your area and connect with other OFA supporters.
You’ll have instant access to the latest information on important issues, OFA news, photos and video.
Additional features will be available for download throughout the year—including more ways for you to get involved in the upcoming November elections.
