Weekly Radio Address: Now Is The Time to Take Action Against Gun Violence
What this Inauguration Means to Our President
“Kid reporters from @Highlights @NGKids @Scholastic & @TimeForKidsMag just asked Mrs. Obama & Dr. Biden some great Qs!
Barack Obama sent this note to supporters today, letting folks know about the launch of Organizing for Action.
Today, a new grassroots organization is being launched: Organizing for Action.
Following in the footsteps of the campaign you built, Organizing for Action will be an unparalleled force in American politics. It will work to turn our shared values into legislative action—and it’ll empower the next generation of leaders in our movement.
We may have started this as a long shot presidential primary campaign in 2007, but it’s always been about more than just winning an election. Together, we’ve made our communities stronger, we’ve fought for historic legislation, and we’ve brought more people than ever before into the political process.
We have the power to do even more to change our politics and our country for the better. With Organizing for Action, you’ll have every resource you need to do it.
But it starts with you. This new organization is in your hands.
I’m so excited to see what you all do next—and so grateful to be part of it.
