This is what we mean

Friend -- When we talk about "our movement," 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've made. And it's working. Here's a sampling of what we heard at town halls all over the country last recess: "It was a wake-up call for Rep. Bilirakis...seeing constituents be vocal about their concerns. We're from all walks of life, but all passionate about what is right." -- Mary F. (Palm Harbor, FL) "I'm a child of the 1960's, and I never picketed or did anything about the Vietnam War. This is my time. It makes me feel like I'm actually doing something." -- Karen M. (Saco, ME) "Seeing the number of people who turned out on a weekend gave me confidence in our democratic system...I was very heartened." -- Debora M. (El Cerrito, CA) "When people get silenced, they're going to raise their voices." -- Holly B. (Tahlequah, OK) "We had 2,000 people attend...for most, it was their first town hall." -- Gail L. (San Rafael, CA) "In a time of turmoil, it's comforting to see. I stood...with a wonderful crowd of like-minded people concerned about our healthcare, environment, and country." -- Ellen K. (Somerville, NJ) This work is a marathon, not a sprint -- and together, we're keeping the fight for real, lasting change alive.
OFA volunteers are still fired up, and still ready to go - here's what people are saying.
