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

And so begins the week between Christmas and New Years, typically a week off for many (non-essential workers) in the United States. No expectations, even less pressure most years.

This is not one of those years. With eight days until control of the Senate will be decided by Georgia voters, the stakes could not be higher. The pressure is on.

By standing in the way of Democrats’ calls for desperately needed relief, Georgia’s Republican Senators have exposed their greed and apathy, 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! 

If we cannot win the Senate next week, 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 for the American people 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.

Let’s put 2020 behind us and ring in the new year right: with the ability to enact a progressive agenda in 2021.

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

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to charge Trump with bribery for selling Presidential pardons, 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.
