Please use the service request form below. We’ll get back to you very soon!
WHAT IS FAST?
The Field and Affiliate Support Team (FAST) helps to connect, organize and develop ORMA affiliates and provide collaboration among other community groups, interest groups, progressive political groups, alliances and organizations. We provide:
- Field Organizing Support (helping affiliates recruit and maintain active members)
- Coalition Building with Allies (assisting in issue-based and electoral campaigns)
- Affiliate Data and Communication Support (training, resources and data exchanges)
JOIN THE AFFILIATE SUPPORT NETWORK
To help all ORMA Affiliates grow stronger and more powerful, the Field and Affiliate Support Team holds monthly Affiliate Support Zoom calls on second Mondays from 7:30 – 9:00pm.
This is a great chance for new and struggling affiliates to ask for help from more mature and successful groups. Whichever kind of affiliate you’re part of, or even if you’re still working on starting one in your region, we hope you can join us for the call and share if something comes up for you. Sign up for meeting agendas and reminders.
