Today’s action: Let’s win in both Senate seats in Georgia!

Imagine: a 2021 without Trump OR Mitch McConnell in charge. We worked hard to successfully tackle the first…and now we’re pushing to secure the second!

In huge thanks to the Black activist leaders in Georgia, who worked tirelessly to engage and register new voters and particularly Black voters (Stacey Abrams and grassroots organizers registered over 800,000 people!), Georgia is so close to being the blue state we always knew it could be!

With Georgia’s Presidential electoral votes all but secured, we turn our attention to the two Senate run-off races, which will take place on January 5th. If we win both, the Senate is OURS.

Our primary goal between now and January 5th is flipping both Senate seats in Georgia’s run-off election. Sign up for a phone bank shift TODAY or this weekend to chat with Georgia voters, and boot Mitch McConnell out of his Majority Leader seat.

Both of Georgia’s Democratic candidates for Senate are to be admired and supported. Rev. Raphael Warnock is Black pastor and activist who has spent years in the field of voter rights and registration. He’s fighting for climate policy, affordable health care, and ending mass incarceration and privatized prisons.

Jon Ossoff is an investigative journalist who’s campaigning for clean energy, women’s healthcare (his wife is an OB/GYN!), LGBTQ rights, and ending Citizens United. Ossoff worked with and was endorsed by the legendary late Black civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis.

Both races will be incredibly tight. But Georgia flipped blue for Biden…which means flipping both Senate seats blue is our next fully-achievable challenge!

We’ve got until January 5th to secure these two Georgia Senate seats and hand Joe Biden complete control of Congress! Sign up for a phone bank shift TODAY or this weekend!
