Defend Migrant Families from Trump’s Attacks

Defend migrant families from Trump’s attacks
Hi #Resisters,
June 30th marks one year from the day that #Resisters held over 800 rallies across the country to tell the Trump administration that #FamiliesBelongTogether. Still many families remain separated. #Resisters are coming together to commemorate this anniversary and to demand all families be reunited.
Here’s what #Resisters can do in their own communities:
2. Reach out to #Resist’s organizers to chat about what actions would make the most impact for your area
It’s unacceptable that one year later families are still being separated. #Resisters can make a difference by standing up to this administration and demanding families be reunited. Can you host a #FamiliesBelongTogether event?
Thank you for everything you do,
Anu

Become an OFA Community Engagement Fellow

Application deadline: Wednesday, July 11, 2018

OFA supporters are change-makers. We’re bold. We speak out for progress. And we fight for change by getting organized. Right now, we need folks like you—smart, passionate people—more than ever. The Fellowship equips new organizers with the tools and training to approach complex problems that impact the health of communities, both right now and long-term.

For six weeks, Fellows learn from experienced organizers and trainers through weekly online trainings. Fellows get a deep dive into the theory of change behind community organizing, then, when possible, work side-by-side with experienced community organizers where they live.

Throughout the program, Fellows are challenged to build community relationships, develop fundamental organizing skills, and explore their leadership potential.

What you’ll do as a Community Engagement Fellow:

 

  • Attend online training every Wednesday at 7:30pm CT from 7/18 to 8/22
  • Complete weekly assignments after each online training
  • Be provided opportunities to apply skills to your community organizing

 

Application process and timeline:

 

  • Application deadline: Wednesday, July 11, 2018
  • Acceptance will occur on a rolling basis

The OFA Community Engagement Fellowship is unpaid, is primarily for educational and training purposes, and is not expected to lead to an offer of permanent employment.

 

Support Mark Walker for 53rd District IL State Rep

While you may live outside the 53rd district, this race is key to making sure that Illinois gets back on its feet fiscally, and everyone in Illinois has a vested interest in getting Mark Walker elected. If you are interested in volunteering as a canvasser or phonebanker, sign up at this link.

Hi there, my name is Varun, and I’m field director for Mark Walker’s campaign for State Representative. As you may know, Mark Walker is running in the 53rd, and previously held the seat from 2009-2011.

In his time at Springfield, he shepherded wide-reaching legislation concerning TIFs and economic development, and had authored and brokered a solution to the impending budget crisis that Rauner then tore up. Mark wants to go back to Springfield to finish what he started and resolve our public finance crisis and challenge the new threats to this state that have manifested themselves in Trump. In addition, he wants to make sure that his opponent, a Roskam staffer that supports the failed Roskam/Rauner agenda, doesn’t end up being elected and misrepresenting his constituents in Springfield.
