Organizing for Action
Sula --

We're just a few hours away from our last fundraising deadline of the year. And it's not an overstatement to say that we need you now more than ever.

So this is your last chance -- help support OFA's work by chipping in whatever you can before we close the books on this critical quarter.

Across the country, OFA supporters and volunteers are already gearing up for the fights we'll face in the next few months. I'm not going to lie to you, it's daunting -- but if the last few years have taught me anything, it's that this movement can tackle huge things when we come together and fight like hell.

We have to keep up the fight if we're going to defend the progress we've worked so tirelessly for. Nobody ever said change was easy, but we've proven we can bring it. Protecting it is going to be just as hard, but if we stick together, we can do that, too.

That's why I'm asking you, Sula: Invest in this work. Help keep this movement going strong as we move into the new year. Pitch in $5, or whatever you can, before tonight's deadline.

Chip in
Thanks for being a part of this.

Organizing for Action

In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power, he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people. And over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead.
I'm just beginning to write my remarks. But I'm thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here.
Since 2009, we've faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger. That's because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding -- our conviction that, together, we can change this country for the better.

Because, for me, it's always been about you.
