Have a spare bed in the Chicago area?

Organizing for Action
Friend --

Here's a way you can go the extra mile to support the next generation of grassroots leaders:

OFA is bringing dozens of organizers to the Chicago area starting in February for our Spring Fellowship Program, where they'll pick up top-notch skills from some of the best in the business.

These folks will volunteer full-time 40 hours a week for three months -- all they need is a place to stay.

We're looking for Chicago-area supporters who are willing to open their homes and host a Spring Fellow either for just a few weeks, or for the duration of the program from early February until the end of April.

Let us know if you're interested in providing housing for a Spring Fellow and an OFA organizer will follow up with more details.
This isn't something we'd ask of just anyone -- you've been one of our best supporters for a while, and you know how the OFA community is truly a family.

If you can't host someone this spring but would like to help out with future housing needs, that's OK. Just let us know.

We're hoping these Spring Fellows will leave Chicago with all the tools they'll need to go out and do good in the progressive movement. Who knows? In a few years, you might look back and say you knew these organizers back before they were famous.

Sign up now if you're interested in learning more about hosting an OFA Spring Fellow, and we'll be in touch soon:

P.S. -- You can learn more about the Fellowship program here. And if you know anyone who'd be good for the program, the deadline to apply is this Sunday, January 12th.
