Obama To Speak At Organizing For Action Summit

WASHINGTON (March 11, 2013)--President Barack Obama plans to speak Wednesday night to donors and Democratic activists who are involved with Organizing America, a nonprofit formed to promote his agenda.

Two people involved in the planning confirmed the speech to the founders' summit of Organizing for Action, which was first reported by Politico Monday morning, speaking on condition of anonymity because the event planned at a Washington hotel has not yet been officially announced.

Former Obama advisers who transformed the president’s re-election campaign into a grassroots machine to support his initiatives are running the group, which is raising millions from donors and whipping up support for issues like gun control and an immigration overhaul.
