The future of the movement for change

This is the destiny of Obama's movement for change- now called Organizing for America:



It is focused very much on sustaining the President's agenda in Washington through maintaining the network of activists built during the campaign to help him maintain local, grassroots support. Whether it is part of the explicit agenda of Organizing for America or not, I would be surprised if having maintained this movement it does not evolve in new ways. I can see the next generation of local civic activists and volunteers being nourished and working to change their local communities. I will keep on the hunt for examples of where the Obama activism has been translated into local as well as national change.

It is nice to see David Plouffe in the flesh......!
