The Organizing for America (OFA) NY Statewide Listening Tour, a project of the Democratic National Committee, is coming to Buffalo this August 16th for the purpose of gathering ideas on how OFA should organize in communities to support President Obama's priorities. Committed to building on and strengthening the historic grassroots network created during the Obama campaign and helping to advance the President's agenda, the tour is part of a series of tours taking place in states across the country.
Attendees, including supporters and volunteers from the general election, will be invited to voice their goals and concerns. The group will also discuss the best way to provide Americans with the tools to make their voices heard in Washington and help bring about the long-term change voters asked for in November.
New Yorkers can visit here to find a listening tour stop in their area. The tour will hold its first stop in the Bronx and Brooklyn and will stop in Manhattan, Rochester, Buffalo, Brooklyn, Albany, Binghamton, Ithaca, Jackson Heights, Long Island, Plattsburg, Rockland County, Saratoga Springs, Staten Island, Syracuse, Utica, Watertown and Westchester.
"We're here with one goal in mind - to listen," said Melissa DeRosa, OFA State Director for New York. "The historic dedication and commitment of our supporters is what brought us victory in November and is what will help us advance President Obama's bold vision for the country over the coming years. They, more than anyone else, know what approaches will work best in their community and we're eager to hear from them."
OFA is committed to building on and strengthening the historic grassroots network created during the campaign and helping advance the President's policy agenda. Volunteers and supporters are continuing to have conversations and educate their neighbors and members of their community about the President's plan to reform health insurance. In recent weeks, OFA held Health Care Kick-Off events in New York and in thousands of communities across the country. On June 27th, OFA supporters and volunteers participated in a National Health Care Day of Service. OFA recently held a Health Care Week of Action with events across New York and the country.
