Today’s Action: Write letters for Georgia Senate seats!

This week, instead of working on pandemic relief for millions of Americans out of work, struggling with rent, and desperate for sturdy healthcare during these frightening times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has instead focused…on packing the courts with even more Trump appointed judges.

Don’t expect McConnell to suddenly get cooperative with Biden – Mitch is planning on sending Democratic legislation to the graveyard until he goes to the graveyard. We MUST get McConnell out of the driver’s seat if Joe Biden is to have a real shot at the changes we want to see, by flipping both Senate seats in Georgia.

Sign up with Vote Forward or Postcards to Voters to send letters and postcards to Georgia voters before the Senate runoff elections! We have until December 7th to register voters, and January 5th to Get Out The Vote!

Both Senate seats in Georgia have entered the January 5th run-off because no candidate won 50% of the vote. If we win both, the Senate vote will be tied 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaker. And the really great news is that both Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are excellent Democratic candidates for whom we’re happy to Get Out The Vote!

The GOP is pouring millions into these races to keep Mitch McConnell in control. We’re going to counter – with millions of volunteer hours to support Stacey Abrams and other Black activists who are leading the way, one vote at a time.

Flip the Senate blue, and oust McConnell from majority leadership, via Georgia’s special election for both Senate seats on January 5th! Write letters or postcards to Georgia voters – sign up now with Vote Forward or Postcards to Voters.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demand the resignation of the Republican Senators who profited off classified outbreak intel, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
