President Barack Obama plans to speak to donors, alumni of his campaign and Democratic activists involved with a group promoting his second-term agenda.
Obama loyalists and former staffers in January converted his re-election campaign into Organizing for Action. The nonprofit group says Obama will attend an August summit to push lawmakers to take action on Obama's agenda. Most members of Congress return home during the August congressional recess to hold events with constituents.
Obama last spoke to the group in March at a Washington fundraiser for top donors.
The speech suggests Obama is sticking with Organizing for Action despite its struggles. The group attracted widespread attention at first, but has struggled to raise money and to make good on its mission to rally support for Obama's priorities, like gun control.
