Mobilize for Georgia!

The runoffs in Georgia will determine which party controls the Senate. Take action with us today!

In 2020, we saw you mobilize to secure a more just, inclusive, and democratic world by powering 13.1M shifts across 340k events and actions. In the final week before Election Day alone, we saw 1.33M shifts from 551k volunteers. As we celebrate winning the Presidency, we also must shift the momentum, not halt it.

In Georgia, no candidate for Senate gained a majority vote, thus bringing about a January 2021 runoff election. These runoffs will determine which party controls the Senate.

Runoffs occur when neither candidate meets the criteria for winning the election—and Georgia law states that a majority of the vote must be secured in order for a candidate to win.

It is worth noting that this same law was crafted in the 1960s to uphold white political power and continue to streamline disenfranchisement in this nation. Given the nature of the law and its clear partiality towards voting that does not favor the leading candidate (but instead the candidate with over 50% of the total vote), it is clear that Black political initiatives were diminished and those who would have won simply didn’t.

But now the tides are turning, and a lot of that can be attributed to the work of Stacey Abrams, her incredible team, and community.

Abrams, the first black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in the United States, was turned off by the mismanagement of the 2018 election—but her goal of building a more equitable nation did not dissipate when she lost her race. It intensified and grew. Abrams launched Fair Fight Action and Fair Count to help curb voter suppression, ensure fair representation, and encourage more participation in civic engagement.

As our country directs its attention towards Georgia, the fight has not stopped for Abrams—and it doesn’t end for the rest of us either. Abrams raised just $3.6 million in two days for the upcoming critical runoff election and helped launch GAsenate.com to help Warnock and Ossoff secure their spots in the senate. Despite this achievement, it will take the concerted effort and mobilization of Americans everywhere to ensure that Georgia is made a more equitable place—representative of its increasingly diverse population.

Mobilize with us. Mobilize for Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. Mobilize for your future.

Consider this a call to action.
