We started OD Action in the summer of 2017 with a dream of translating some of the immense progressive energy around online content into real world action that could make a difference in combatting the Trump agenda and helping Democrats retake Congress in 2018.
Just a few months later, OD Action had exceeded our loftiest expectations with a network of more than a quarter million Americans committed to doing our part to right our ship of state and restore a sense of basic decency to our government.
As the partner action network of Occupy Democrats, we have participated in thousands of actions and contacts to elected officials — in person, with petitions, and by phone and email.
And it has made a big difference.
Together, we have helped to defeat Trumpcare, push Congressional Republicans into early retirement at an unprecedented rate, and turn Election Day 2017 into a resounding Democratic victory the likes of which we hadn’t seen in years.
And we’re just getting started.
We will continue to use every tool at our disposal to fight back against the Trump agenda; to help Democrats retake Congress and hold this lawless regime accountable.
Even then, we will not be satisfied. We believe in America’s promise as a land of equal opportunity for all, but we know our nation has fallen well short.
We will not stop fighting until that promise is fulfilled, and we ask you to join us in that fight.
