The nation's most famous community organizer is back at it. President Obama today announced a new group, Organizing for Action, to push his agenda like gun control.
It was announced in an Obama email and in a video by first lady Michelle Obama, sporting her new bangs. It is a successor to Obama's campaign operation, Organizing for America.
In the video, Michelle Obama said that the Obama campaign group will help create a society in her husband's eyes. "The work you've done has brought us so much closer to the world as it should be."
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.
Michelle recorded a video to tell you more about the new organization -- take a look and let OFA know you're in:
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.
