August is the month when members of Congress leave Washington to spend time in their home districts. It’s a chance for lawmakers to hear directly from the people they represent, and it’s a critical time to make voices heard on specific issues. In 2014, OFA asked the people to share their stance on women's rights, gun violence prevention, immigration reform, climate change, and healthcare with their elected officials. The Action wordmark was initially developed to call attention to these materials in preparation for the August session. But, it quickly became a mark with more longevity because it captured the essence of what OFA stands for most—action. The action mark has been applied to countless designs across a range of media including: digital, print, social media, and merchandise.
