Today’s Action: Diving back in for the Senate!

The biggest thanks and congratulations to absolutely everyone in the OD Action community. Your efforts fighting Donald Trump over the past four years, building the Blue Wave in 2018, and getting out the vote in 2020 have reached the conclusion we have hoped and dreamed about since the day that man was announced as President.

Now, we hope you had a glass of bubbly and a nice long nap over the weekend…because our other goal of flipping the Senate is still in play! In huge thanks to the Black activist leaders in Georgia, who have worked tirelessly to engage and register new voters of color and particularly Black voters, Georgia is the (not officially confirmed, but nearly certain) blue state we always knew it could be!

Both Senate seats are up for grabs and heading to run-off elections on January 5th. If we secure both, the Senate is OURS.

Our primary goal between now and January 5th is flipping both Georgia Senate seats in the run-off election. Make a donation to fund on-the-ground efforts to register Georgia voters and help both candidates campaign. This link will three-way split your gift between both Democratic candidates, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, and Stacey Abrams’ grassroots voter registration organization Fair Fight, which was pivotal in registering Georgian voters to turn the state blue for Biden this year.

Both Democratic candidates 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. And he’s been endorsed by Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and Stacey Abrams, among many others.

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, and is also endorsed by President Obama.

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

Make a donation to support Rev. Raphael Warnock, Jon Ossoff, and Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight organization. We’ve got until January 5th to secure these two Georgia Senate seats and hand Joe Biden complete control of Congress!
