WE ARE OFA MARIN

OFA is a non-partisan, non-profit national organization that mobilizes people around issues and builds long-term power through organizing. It started in support of the election of Barack Obama and was re-organized as Organizing for Action in 2013. Five million Americans have taken action with OFA since then.

In resistance, OFA is now fighting, with other progressive groups, against the abrogation of fundamental American ideals and the destruction of the progress achieved during the past 8 years.

An experienced chapter, OFA Marin is one of over 250 grassroots chapters in neighborhoods across the country. Since 2009, our volunteers have been standing up and taking on the big fights for social justice, basic fairness, equal rights, and expanding opportunity. We receive continuous support from our national organization.

Mission and Goals

  • Take on challenges wherever we can be most effective (Congress, Sacramento, local),
  • Capture the explosion of energy and talent among new emerging groups.
  • Expand participation in our chapter to include those adversely impacted by the Trump agenda and those who never took progressive action before but now want to “do something”.
  • Provide training for new activists and groups drawing from our team’s experiences and the resources provided by the National OFA.

How We Work:

The OFA Marin “Fighting Back” committee meets at least monthly. Our action agendas are opportunities for collaboration and training. We discuss how to take action on the latest threats by planning events, supporting and participating in our partners’ events and brainstorming solutions to tough problems. We take time to socialize and enjoy a pot luck.

ORGANIZING FOR ACTION

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT “OUR MOMENT,” THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN. IT’S REAL PEOPLE SHOWING UP AND DOING THE WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO DEFEND THE PROGRESS WE HAVE MADE.
