It’s Time to Fill the Gap in the Senate!

Georgia Action Project

The morning the networks called the race, and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris secured their place in history, our mighty club called on you to keep fighting and help us flip two close U.S. Senate seats in Georgia—two seats that would give the Democrats control of both chambers of Congress on Inauguration Day.

Within hours, over 60 of you signed up to participate! (Sign up to Fight for Georgia!)

In the next few days, we’ll be announcing the first of several organized efforts to assist Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock as they take on incumbent Republicans David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler respectively. 

Our club is going to help carry these two Senate races on January 5th! We’ve been working to connect with friends on the ground in Georgia in an effort to adopt a block of “sister cities” that we can work with to help drive turnout for this unique January election. We’re working on a plan with one community and are in the process of securing another.

Details will be forthcoming later this week, but our work will include postcard writing (and yes, the Zoom postcard nights will be back!), phone calls, text messaging, and any other creative vehicle we can build to help turn out the vote in Georgia and give President-elect Biden the majority he needs to turn the country around.

While we will be working to organize with maximum impact—as a team with a specific focus—we are also encouraging you to get involved individually in a variety of other ways. Here are a few to consider…

Sign up to volunteer at the campaigns of Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. The campaigns are especially looking for phone bankers.

Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action group is doing phone banks and texting banks frequently. Follow them on Facebook here or bookmark this page which will update as events are added.

There are also several organizations coordinating postcards. We have contacted them to determine postcard pricing for various quantities. They print the cards and ship us the lists of names along with the printed packs. We will likely distribute them the same way we did for the fall election using the Chagrin and Orange outposts. If you are interested in working on this activity, please email us to let us know how many cards you can commit to write. Keep in mind that most of the cards will be written between December 1 through December 23. Cards will need to be in the mail by then to arrive in time for the January 5th runoff.
