A rare acknowledgement from OFA


Big news from OFA: More than 237,000 people have chipped in to own a piece of this organization. We've raised more than $13.1 million so far -- that's an average gift of $55 -- all toward building the biggest and smartest most truly grassroots movement.
And get this: More than 3.1 million supports have taken action this year -- from making calls to tweeting to training new organizers. 814 Summer Fellows are hard at work across the country. Volunteers have held more than 6,500 local events, and have sharpened skills at our more than 500 grassroots trainings.
Our action drives the news. We're raising the voices of real Americans in Washington, and standing alongside anyone who is doing the same wherever they live. OFA is putting pressure on lawmakers (of both parties.)
We're fighting for progress, and none of that would be possible without you. Thanks.
SHYAMSUNDER!

to me
Shyamsunder --

I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.

You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.

I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support, and doing what I can to finish what we started.

But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.

Today is the clearest proof yet that, against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.

There's a lot more work to do.

But for right now: Thank you.

Barack
