Call To Action – Something You Can Do Now

Despite the pandemic, you voted in record numbers to elect Joe Biden as our president. You marched in the streets. You organized. You advocated. You fought for our values every step of the way. URGENT INFO********THIS IS A CALL TO ACTIONEveryone please IMMEDIATELY pick up your phone and call your Republican state legislators and urge them to certify the election. There is a high-pressure campaign being implemented from the Republicans who are calling them and asking them to DENY certification. We need to counter that pressure RIGHT NOW. Please share this and reach out to your network and advise them to do the same. Our democracy is counting on you! Suggestions for donations to the Georgia Senate Race runoff’s.

Here’s what you can do to make the biggest impact in this make-or-break fight, which will determine whether we take back the Senate from Mitch McConnell: — Georgians have until December 7th to register to vote in the runoffs. You can make calls to Georgia voters to help them get registered before the deadline. 17-year-old Georgians who turn 18 by January 5, 2021 are eligible to vote in the run-off election that will be held on that date. Please spread the word.

— Let locals lead. Donate directly to the candidates’ campaigns and to grassroots organizations led by communities of color, who worked tirelessly to register new voters and mobilize the state for Joe Biden. FairFight Action, New Georgia Project, and Black Voters Matter Fund are a few of the organizations to support in this moment and beyond. You can split a donation between FairFight and the two campaigns by going to GASenate.com, and donate to New Georgia Project (newgeorgiaproject.org) and Black Voters Matter Fund (blackvotersmatterfund.org) at their websites.

— Volunteer with the Warnock and Ossoff campaigns. You can find all the information you need by heading to mobilize.us/fairfightactionmobilize.us/electjon, or mobilize.us/warnockforgeorgia.

Georgia, home to John Lewis, is now the ultimate battlefield, thanks to years of grassroots organizing by Black leaders like Lewis, Stacey Abrams, Nse Ufot, Helen Butler, Deborah Scott, Tamieka Atkins, and countless others. Their hard work has gotten Georgia to this crucial junction, and now it’s up to the rest of us to support them in every way possible.

The stakes couldn’t be higher. Let’s bring this home, flip the Senate, and usher in the transformative change this nation requires.
