WhatIsWorking

Hi All

I wanted to address the ?? about OFA posted on an earlier OFA thread

In 2008 and 2012 OFA was a partisan electoral group whose sole purpose was to elect Barack Obama.

Today we are a 5013C non-partisan group that CANNOT work on electoral politics. We will retain that status after the President retires and hope he will join us in our community organizing efforts. We will no longer switch off the non profit status since we no longer need to get him elected.

Having said that several OFA volunteers are working on election politics with our “hats off”. We are volunteering on local elections, presidential elections and working on ballot initiatives, but our title is “engaged citizen” not OFA volunteer.

I am working on voter registration, and participating in delegate elections this weekend. Several other volunteers in Santa Rosa are registering voters, and calling for Hillary and Bernie.

If you would like to get involved with voter registration I would suggest you contact the local Democratic party or league of Women Voters.

If you would like to work on Hillary’s campaign in CA i have that contact info – send me an email whatisworking@gmail.com

Also – remember that although the official organization of OFA is not active in election politics – many of the OFA paid staff, volunteer staff, and OFA Fellows, will join candidates staff.

Just this week Jennifer Warner – National Field Director for OFA (#2 spot at HQ) stepped down to join the Hillary campaign.

In 2014 Sonoma County had an OFA Fellow who was hired by Tom Udall’s staff and he worked in NM for both Udall and Ben Ray Lujan. Having OFA Fellow on your resume still gets you in the door for on political campaigns.

Although the superb electoral organization and strategy we saw in 2008 and 2012 is no longer a part of OFA it lives on in the staff and volunteers that elected PBO twice.

If you live outside of CA, and can’t find anyone to work with, send me a note, I can see if my contacts can get you a name.

First Lady Michelle Obama On #BetterMakeRoom

Seventeen: First Lady Michelle Obama Is Here to Make Going to College Way Less Stressful

Maybe you want to be a high-powered lawyer, like First Lady Michelle Obama was before she became the FLOTUS. Or maybe you want to work in the White House, like she does now, or become a scientist or a journalist or a teacher! No matter what your big dreams look like, you need a college education to take you there. That’s why Mrs. Obama launched the Better Make Room campaign, which encourages teens just like you to work hard in high school so you can shine in college. (Remember her viral music video that practically broke the Internet? Yeah, she rapped, “If you wanna fly jets, you should go to college. Reach high and cash checks? Fill your head with knowledge.”)

In November, we asked Seventeen readers to submit essays about how you’re overcoming obstacles to secure a spot at your dream school. Two lucky winners — Gemma Busoni and Zaniya Lewis, above — won a spot on our May cover alongside Mrs. Obama, plus they were invited to the White House for a heart-to-heart about applying to college, figuring out the future, and slaying the haters who tell you no. Her advice to Gemma and Zaniya rings true for you, too.
