Thank Sara!

When OD Action began sending a daily email in mid-2017, we were in crisis. The United States government was under the complete control of neo-fascists who, despite having the support of only a minority of Americans, trampled rights, sabotaged institutions, and enriched the corrupt and powerful at the expense of everyone else.

On Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey famously vented her dread by shouting at a sheet cake and, while we enjoyed the bit, at OD Action, we felt there had to be a more productive use of our energy.

Enter Sara. As ODA’s Director of Action, Sara not only gave our newsletter a voice, she gave hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans a productive outlet for our anger, sorrow, and frustration — and she did it every single weekday for almost four years.

As Sara moves on to new ventures, add your name to say thank you and send a brief message of appreciation for a job very well done.

For many of us, the years between Presidents Obama and Biden — especially those two where Democrats were in the minority — felt as hopeless as trying to hold back a tsunami with a dish sponge. Sara gave us ways to focus our energies as a group and feel like we could make a difference. Often, she made us laugh too!

We didn’t win every fight, but we always showed up. Along the way, we saved Obamacare, made Republicans the first party to lose both chambers of Congress and the White House in back-to-back elections in nearly a century, and won countless crucial battles.

Can one person make a difference? Absolutely. You did. Each of us did. And Sara is one of the organizers who led the way.

Please add your name to thank Sara, wish her luck, and send a message that we appreciate her excellent work at OD Action the last four years!
