Today’s Action: Take action in Georgia before your holidays get busy!

Even for those in complete lockdown, the holidays may be getting busy with virtual family gatherings, last-minute gift shopping, baking and decorating, and at-home movie marathons. But before you settle in for down time…

…remember that the fate of the Senate is being decided right now in Georgia! Early voting has begun for both Senate run-off elections, and if we win both seats, we win control of the Senate.

But GOP voter suppression has ramped up. Major cuts to early voting sites in certain counties that went for Biden have caused 2+ hour lines and significantly depressed turnout in Democratic, predominantly POC, areas.

Volunteer outreach is the key to beating voter suppression. Commit to at least one volunteer shift before the holidays get crazy!

We MUST win the Senate! 

Winning the Senate is arguably just as important as winning the White House. Without Democratic control, Mitch McConnell will be just as much a roadblock for Biden’s agenda as he has been for House Democrats. And he won’t mind at all if we get nothing done the next two years.

Georgia’s Senate candidates, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, are fantastic Democrats for the state and fully capable of beating the Trump-chump incumbents. But voters will need your encouragement to battle the raging suppression that the GOP is bringing, still scalding from their loss of the presidency and making this last effort to block our goals.

Give yourself the gift you want more than anything: a Democratic agenda in 2021.

Sign up for a two-hour shift this weekend to Get Out The Vote in Georgia!
