A few seats are left on the bus! Please rsvp to Aliya and BE SURE to RSVP here to reserve your spot by Thursday morning, 7/26. Please also note: the new departure time is 8:30 AM. Thank you!


This Saturday, July 28th marks an important milestone–only 100 days left until Election Day, November 6th.

If you’re ready to swing into action, join us on our first-ever Greater NYC for Change trip to Philly. We’ll be teaming up with Chelsea/West Village for Change and New York Obama for America teams to help re-elect President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket in this key swing state and central campaign city!

Canvassing in Philadelphia

Logistics: Buses will leave from OFA HQ at 520 EIGHTH AVENUE (between 36th and 37th Streets). Boarding starts at 8 AM and buses depart promptly at 8:30AM, returning to the same location around 7:30 to 8 PM.

Area: Canvassing will take place largely in South Philly and Center City East, which contains Chinatown as well as key constituencies for the President. If you have language abilities that might be helpful, make them known at the email address below. We’ll be registering voters, helping them deal with Pennsylvania’s new photo ID law, and reaching out to undecided voters. Full training is supplied on the bus.

RSVP: Email Aliya at and BE SURE to RSVP here to reserve your place. Book by Thursday night, July 26th since seats on the bus sell out fast. Please bring $10 to help defray the cost of the roundtrip fare, and wear comfortable shoes.

You’ll certainly find yourself discussing the new photo ID laws that many Republican-governed states have imposed, making it difficult (but not impossible!) for minorities, the elderly, and college students, in particular, to vote in this year’s election. Pennsylvania’s law happens to be among the most onerous. Here’s some helpful information.

See you on the bus, and thanks for all you do!
