Support President Elect Biden and turn Georgia Blue
Join us for a special webinar on what you can do to contribute to ensuring a Democratic senate for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The runoff election for two senate seats in Georgia is our opportunity to support democracy and to make a positive impact for the election. Read on for more information. Each one of us has the opportunity and ability to make a difference.
We have a lot to celebrate with President Elect Biden’s overwhelming victory in the past election. Thanks to the two Senate special election races for Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock on January 5, 2021, there is hope for a democratic Senate. The Republicans currently have 50 Senators. Winning the two seats in the runoff election will give us 50 Democrat senators, enabling Vice-President Harris to provide the tie-breaking vote when necessary and removing Mitch McConnell’s grip on the Senate. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Stacey Abrams and her team, for the 1st time since 1992 the state of Georgia voted for a Democratic Candidate for President. Even after the hand recount in the state, President-Elect Biden received more than 14,000 votes than Trump. Fortunately it appears as if the people and momentum are on OUR SIDE. We do not need to convince people to vote for Democratic Candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, we just need to REMIND THEM TO VOTE. AND YOU CAN HELP!
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already promised to employ many of the obstructionist tactics he used during the Obama Administration for the Biden Administration including stalling cabinet selections and judicial appointments. Although this is a Senate Race in Georgia, and only Georgia registered voters can VOTE, you do not have to be a Georgia resident or reside in the United States to help with their campaigns. People across the country understand how important this election is for the federal legislation and policy. Therefore, Georgia residents as well as non-residents are contributing money, sending postcards, and phone banking for the campaigns.
If you are interested in helping, but are unsure of how you can help during a pandemic, from the comfort of your home – outside of Georgia or the US, join my free Webinar on December 2, 2020 from 7.00-8.00 EST. Building from my political and organizing experience, I will share tips and suggestions on how YOU can make the difference, from your own home, to truly turning Georgia blue.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
