WHAT IS NWSOFA-INDIVISIBLE?
If you have been affiliated with our group for any length of time you will have noticed that we have changed. We began as Organizing for Obama in the presidential campaigns of 2008 then 2012. but we evolved and are continuing to evolve. Way back then we were pretty small and we relied on a National organization to guide us. Now-a-days we are much larger – more like an organization- and we our goals are determined by the issues that our organization members want to address. We have recently joined other progressive groups which has helped us grow and make more of an impact on the political challenges we face today.
So, what is NWSOFA? We asked our Group Leads and participating members to describe their activities and elaborate on their goals.
“Northwest Suburban veterans of the Obama campaigns formed Northwest Suburbs Organizing for Action in early 2013. NWSOFA embraced the multi-issue advocacy model of Organizing for Action and became one of the most robust and effective chapters of OFA. When OFA changed its model in 2019, NWSOFA chose to become an independent organization affiliated with Indivisible, which shares our commitment to multi-issue volunteer organizing and advocacy. The ability of NWSOFA to survive and thrive despite the disappearance of its parent organization is a tribute to the leadership team of NWSOFA. NWSOFA-Indivisible is helping to transform the northwest suburbs from their conservative past to a diverse and progressive future.” – Matt Flamm, founding member & Chairman Emeritus of NWSOFA-Indivisible.
