Yes, OFA is still a “non-partisan” organization (at least in its IRS filings it is).

Organizing for Action is planning its first official mobilization in support of President Barack Obama’s proposals to curtail gun violence.
The nonprofit that inherited Obama’s campaign infrastructure and 2 million strong volunteer army will hold a “national day of action” on Feb. 22, officials said Tuesday.
Details of the event were not immediately available, but it will be a key test of the operation’s ability to push Obama’s second term agenda. The organization lay largely dormant during the president’s first term when it was housed within the Democratic National Committee.
Katie Hogan, a spokeswoman for the group, said the day of action will consist of a series of coordinated, community-specific events held around the country and could include phone banking to vulnerable members of Congress and door knocking.
Roughly 133,000 OFA activists registered for a Tuesday conference call following the State of the Union address, said Sara El-Amine, OFA’s new national organizing director.
