Today’s Action: Sign up for Georgia runoff letter writing with the cast of Hamilton!

Usually, the Friday after Thanksgiving is a day for resting — and while we here at OD Action certainly still want you to enjoy your holiday, the Georgia runoff election is just too important to our progressive cause for us to slow down now. While Democrats will in fact retain control of the US Senate, Sen. Raphael Warnock’s runoff contest against the observably awful Herschel Walker on Dec. 6th is absolutely critical.

We must stay engaged and involved and keep Georgia blue. We need as many progressives in office as possible to preserve the rights we’ve been fighting so hard for —  reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform, etc. One more seat in the Senate could mean the difference between advancing our progressive agenda or watching Mitch McConnell obstruct and disrupt any further progress over the next two years. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Georgia to join this fight, just be ready to channel the late, great John Lewis and stir up some “good trouble.”

Good, old-fashioned letter writing is one effective way you can pitch in from the comfort of your own home. Tonight from 6-7pm EST, Vote Forward is hosting an amazing letter-writing opportunity, where you’ll be able to write alongside others and learn tips to refine your message to voters. On top of having the wisdom of the Vote Forward team on tap, you’ll also get to hear from past and present Hamilton cast members!

Today’s Action: Get out the vote for John Fetterman!

John Fetterman is the Democratic candidate for the most flippable US Senate seat in the country and the only Pennsylvanian running for the Pennsylvania race. We need all hands on deck across the country to help secure his victory. Fetterman, the Keystone State’s current lieutenant governor, spent 13 years as the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, where he passionately served the people of his community. He has long been a dedicated progressive, even going so far as to officiate one of the first same-sex marriages in Pennsylvania when state laws at the time continued to push antiquated and discriminatory policies.

The margin of error for keeping the Senate in Democratic hands is far too thin for comfort, but we can take action to ensure we keep power and continue advancing our critical progressive agenda. Democrats’ path to keeping Mitch McConnell from another disastrous run as Senate majority leader runs right through Pennsylvania. Phone-banking is one of the most effective ways you can pitch in from afar. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional; just be ready to do good work.

Our Revolution is hosting phone banks for John Fetterman’s race EVERY WEDNESDAY from 6:30-8:30 PM EDT until Election Day. If you can take part in just one session, the voters you reach could help tip the scales and flip  Pennsylvania.

The fight for a truly progressive future does not end with Fetterman. There are committed Democratic candidates all across the country that need your help getting out the vote next month. You can filter through virtual phone- and text-banking events through Mobilize. So many critical issues are on the line this election — reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform — everything we’ve fought so hard for! It’s never been more important to get out the vote and work for real change in America. Join the fight and do your part today!

Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to pass the Inflation Reduction Act!

Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer sent shockwaves through Washington when they announced their historic climate and social investment deal, dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act.” It contains the largest climate package in US history, $369 billion, and staves off what would be a disastrous health insurance premium hike by canceling the scheduled expiration of COVID-era ACA subsidies.

Passing this bill and delivering a surprise win for President Biden would be a huge boost for Democrats right before the pivotal midterm elections. But far more importantly, it would be a huge win for the the American people and our planet. But if even one expected YES vote becomes a NO, the bill fails.

That’s why we need to ensure all our senators will support the package during this week’s vote. The IRA is projected to reduce American emissions by 40% — 1 billion tons of carbon — bring in $729 billion in new revenue, reduce the deficit, lower prescription drug prices, and extend Affordable Care Act subsidies through 2024 — all without raising taxes on working Americans.

There is zero reason this bill should not be signed into law as soon as possible. The future of our planet and possibly our democracy could be at stake.

Call (202.224.3121) or email your senators and demand they pass the historic Inflation Reduction Act!

Today’s Action: Take action to help Kentucky flood victims!

Unprecedented flooding has taken at least 16 lives in Eastern Kentucky since Wednesday night, with the death toll predicted to rise significantly. By the end of this tragedy, hundreds of families will have been displaced and their hometown will never be the same. Governor Beshear indicated that most of the survivors could “lose just about everything.” After 300 rescues, there are still more to be made.

For us here at OD Action, this destruction is personal. Kentucky is our home base, it’s an area that is already disenfranchised, exploited, and without proper support from negligent Republican legislators and corporate predators. Our neighbors are without food, water, and shelter. Many of these people have no idea what their home now looks like. With even more potential climate disasters on the way, the people of Eastern Kentucky need help to bounce back from this horrible tragedy as quickly as possible.

Make a donation to Gov. Beshear’s Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund or check out this verified Amazon wish list for flood survivors! You can find even more ways to help here, but however you decide to — it makes all the difference. 

Even just sharing the donation links with your friends and family could make a huge impact.

The AFL-CIO’s latest report debunks the narrative pushed by oligarch mouthpieces blaming workers for inflation. “CEO pay rose 18.2%, faster than the U.S. inflation rate of 7.1%,” the analysis finds. “In contrast, U.S. workers’ wages fell behind inflation, with worker wages rising only 4.7% in 2021. The average S&P 500 companies’ CEO-to-worker pay ratio was 324-to-1.”

Today’s Action: Tell transportation Secretary Pete Buttigeg to put the airlines in their place!

Anyone who’s been to an airport recently knows what an absolute mess American air transportation is these days. Thanks to a shortage of pilots, air traffic control issues, and general staffing issues post-COVID, airlines are scrambling to staff flights, leading to tens of thousands of cancellations.

This isn’t a surprise to the airlines. Flights are scheduled months in advance, meaning that these airlines knew they didn’t have the people to staff them, but they accepted people’s money anyway and then left them out in the cold when the time came for them to travel. To make matters worse, in 2021 they refused to refund a staggering $10 billion dollars to American travelers who had their flights canceled.

Secretary Pete Buttigeg announced the conclusion of investigations into a few unnamed airlines who canceled flights and failed to give refunds to passengers, but there is still no information on whether or not passengers will receive their refunds at all. 

Email the Department of Transportation and demand Secretary Pete Buttigeg fight to get airline passengers their refunds!

Enough is enough. During the pandemic, the airline companies got a $54 billion bailout from the US taxpayer, and they proceeded to lay off 56,000 people anyway. Those people never got replaced, and now the US traveler who paid for the airline bailouts is getting ripped off and abused by these monopolistic behemoths. 

Despite knowing that their teams are not performing at pre-pandemic level and that they are lacking in staff, airlines continue to knowingly oversell their capacity at the expense of American families. Secretary Buttigeg promises that enforcement action will come in the following weeks, but we need to know that full refunds for slighted passengers will be included in that action — and that these exploitative, greedy business practices will come to an immediate end.

Email the Department of Transportation and call for a speedy resolution!
