Organizing for Action acting to avoid organizing over #Syria.
This should not surprise. The awkward position in which progressive allies of President Barack Obama find themselves can be seen clearly in the actions of his former political arm, now called Organizing for Action, which despite the need for activists to lobby Congress to support the president’s call for military strikes, is essentially voting “present.” Capitol Hill is all but singularly focused on Obama’s push | Read More »
No One Showed Up at Organizing for Action’s Climate Change Rally Because #ScienceSaysSo

There are over 130 known digger wasp species. In preparation for egg laying, they construct a protected “nest” (some species dig nests in the ground, while others use pre-existing holes) and then | Read More »
