Call Your MoCs to Support Impeaching Trump Again and Removing Him This Time, FFS

Call your Members of Congress (MoCs)–your House Rep and your two Senators–to support impeaching Trump again.

Yep, this is the new running post until Trump is impeached and removed, neutralized by the 25th Amendment, or resigns.

If you want to skip all this and act, scroll down for the updated calling/emailing script.

The Dems in the House of Representatives have drafted a single article of Impeachment for Incitement of Insurrection.

Read the draft document here: https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/08/politics/trump-article-of-impeachment-draft/index.html

We at OTYCD are drafting this running update under the assumption that the House of Representatives voted on Monday, January 11, 2021, to advance this single Article of Impeachment.

Update: Monday afternoon, David Cicilline, who represents Rhode Island’s 1st District, tweeted the following, along with a screenshot of the document:

Here is the article of impeachment I just introduced, along with 213 colleagues, against President Trump for Incitement of Insurrection. Most important of all, I can report that we now have the votes to impeach.

The best and clearest explanation as to why things are moving so damn slowly comes from Samantha Corbin (@SamanthaCorbin) in a series of tweets she sent on the evening of January 8, 2021:


YES, we all want to see impeachment articles filled ASAP. Unfortunately, House Rules require unanimous consent in order to meet sooner than Monday and McCarthy is objecting. Put another way, we have to wait because Republicans continue to obstruct the pursuit of justice.

On Monday, we should expect to see articles of impeachment filed, as reported, on one issue: Insurrection. Which these members saw and witnessed with their own eyes, and whom all were put in harms way as a result of. If they can’t vote for that, they should resign.

You don’t even have to take my word for it: [She reproduces a tweet sent to Amy Siskind from Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which reads, “Why tweet snark when you can read the House Rules? The House meets Monday; to do so otherwise needs unanimous consent and McCarthy objects. We JUST went through this with $2000 checks over Xmas. Meanwhile we are using the weekend to build support for #impeachment.”]

We at OTYCD will point out here that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was among the 147 Republicans who voted to overturn the 2020 election results, and he cast this vote after living through the terror of the January 6, 2021 insurrection.

Back to Samantha Corbin’s thread. Confirmation from @SpeakerPelosi that they will move forward with impeachment. [She retweets another tweet from Christine Pelosi that contains a screenshot we’re unable to reproduce, but Pelosi captioned it: #BREAKING (with siren emoji) “It is the hope of Members that the President will immediately resign. But if he does not, I have instructed the Rules Committee to be prepared to move forward with Congressman Jamie Raskin’s #25thAmendment legislation and a motion for #impeachment.” -@SpeakerPelosi

For the “they should’ve done it yesterday” folks, they didn’t have the votes. A number of members had hoped Pence would enact the 25th amendment but he is refusing, and Cabinet members – rather than protest Trump – resigned to PROTECT him so they didn’t have to vote.

And for the “it’s too late to matter anyway” folks, no. No it’s not. If he is impeached for insurrection even on his last day in office, he is not qualified to run again for any office under the 14th amendment section 3. This is how you stop the Trump 2024 campaign.

LOTS of Qs on impeachment process (& forgive me I’m not used to this many comments!) but in particular folks are worried about if there will be the votes in the Senate for conviction/removal after a House indictment. 1) I encourage folks to help rally votes in the Senate. [That’s OTYCD using bold type, not her.]

2) if the House indicts but the Senate won’t convict/remove, the House indictment would still be significant in a criminal trial after Trump leaves office (but again, call the GOP Senators!)

3) Can Trump be Convicted and Removed by the Senate after he is out of office (once the new Dems are sworn in)? This is more complicated. Lots of legal opinions and I would refer people here as a primer: [She links to an NBC News story]: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/can-trump-be-tried-senate-impeachment-charges-even-after-he-n1253544

4) Regardless of the Senate votes Trump and ANYONE can still be indicted under criminal charges in the future for insurrection which would still render he (or they) ineligible to hold office, without regard to impeachment. [This marks the end of Samantha Corbin’s Twitter thread.]

Since drafting this story, House Majority Whip James Clyburn appeared Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union program and said this:

“We’ll take the vote that we should take in the House, and (House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) will make the determination as to when is the best time to get that vote and get the managers appointed and move that legislation over to the Senate,” Clyburn told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” 

“It just so happens that if it didn’t go over there for 100 days, it could — let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running, and maybe we’ll send the articles sometime after that,” the South Carolina Democrat added.

No no no no NO. The monster is still loose. Waiting 100 days to corral it is beyond insane. No!

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell circulated a memo about how the second Impeachment of Trump would proceed in the Senate.

The memo says the earliest the chamber could take up the matter is January 19, 2021, because it’s currently in recess.

In other words, McConnell does not intend to call the Senators back from their home states to deal with the danger Trump poses, even now.

FUCK THAT.

Seriously, fuck that.

Trump is too dangerous. He has to GO. He has to BE GONE. He HAS TO HAVE BEEN GONE.

When you call your two Senators, you need to ask them to push McConnell to reconvene YESTERDAY, FFS.

And YES going to the trouble of making these calls will matter. Even if your MoCs totally get it and are frantic to push this forward. Even if they’re one of the 147 who voted to overturn the 2020 election results.

How do we know? Here’s anecdotal evidence in the form of a January 8, 2021 tweet from Rep. Don Beyer, who represents Virginia’s 8th District:

We are getting some of the highest call and email volume that we’ve seen since I took office from people urging Trump’s removal. I’m working with colleagues to accelerate impeachment, and also support invoking the 25th Amendment. I agree with my constituents: he has to go ASAP.

Step up and call or email all three of your MoCs. (Calling is preferable. Use email if no one picks up or if voicemail is full.)

Call your House Rep first, then your Senators.

Find their contact information here:

https://whoaremyrepresentatives.org

Before you call, check the MoC’s social media feeds, so you can comment on what they’ve publicly said, or failed to say, about impeaching and removing Trump.

And yes, sorry, you do need to call them. Social media messages carry no weight with them.

Call a district office rather than their D.C. office (they’ve gone home).

If you don’t get a live person, leave a voicemail.

If their voicemail is full, find the email function on their official Member of Congress website (not their campaign site), and send them a message through that.

Sample script, which you should feel free to adapt to your own needs and wishes:


“Dear House Rep/Senator <Lastname>, I am <Firstname Lastname> from <town, state, zip code>.

I am calling/emailing to support the effort to impeach and remove President Donald Trump.

I realize he has less than two weeks left on his presidency. I still want him gone as soon as possible.

<For solid Dem House Reps who voted to impeach: Thank you for voting in favor of impeaching Trump on an article of insurrection. You are doing exactly what I want you to do as my elected Congressional representative, and I thank you. (You can end the call at this point.)>

<For MoCs who were absent for no good reason, or voted present, or voted against impeachment: I note your failure to appear/your vote of “present”/your vote against impeachment and I am profoundly disappointed in your actions. I will remember this and keep this in mind when the 2022 elections approach.>

<An extra sentence for all Senators, regardless of party: I understand that Mitch McConnell circulated a memo about removal proceedings that indicated the Senate won’t take it up until January 19, 2021. That is not acceptable. Trump needs to go NOW. I urge you to pressure McConnell to call the Senate back into session immediately to deal with the matter. It’s that important.”>

Trump’s incitement of the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6 makes him a clear and present danger to our country.

He spoke at a D.C. rally, riled tens of thousands of his keenest fans up, and told them to march on the Capitol as the House and the Senate readied to certify the results of the 2020 election.

He is directly responsible for the insurrection.

He is directly responsible for the deaths of four of his supporters, and the death of a member of the Capitol’s police force.

He is directly responsible for putting hundreds of Congresspeople and their staffs in mortal danger.

If luck wasn’t with us on January 6, the insurrectionists could have killed Vice President Mike Pence and the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi–the second and third in the line of succession behind the president.

He has to go. He has to go NOW. DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT park the article of Impeachment for 100 days. I want you to impeach and remove him.

It’s important to impeach and remove him, rather than invoke the 25th Amendment, because impeaching and removing him bars him from holding public office ever again.

It’s also important to deliver swift, clear, and overwhelming consequences to answer to such foul and grave acts.

If we don’t move with speed and force, other evil-minded people, here and abroad, might try something like this in the future. We can’t have that.

Thank you for considering my request.”

As you might have guessed, this is the new running post until Trump is impeached and removed, neutralized by the 25th Amendment, or resigns.

If you want to get right to it, scroll down for the updated calling/emailing script.

The rest of what’s below are updates that provide context on why this topic will be the running post for several days, and possibly weeks.

We’ll refrain from using the peach emoji to stand for impeachment because we’re pretty sure you’re sick of seeing it after two months of posts on supporting the twin Georgia Senate runoffs (which we WON, yay! Congratulations to Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock and all who helped them along the way.)

Anyway. Nobody thinks Trump’ll resign, so that’s out.

Our Congresspeople have to act to boot him ASAP.

The Dems in the House of Representatives are taking this seriously and moving as fast as they can.

They’ve drafted a single article of Impeachment for Incitement of Insurrection.

Read the draft document here: https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/08/politics/trump-article-of-impeachment-draft/index.html

Call Your MoCs to Support Impeaching Trump Again

Call your Members of Congress (MoCs)–your House Rep and your two Senators–to support impeaching Trump again.

The Constitution calls for Trump to leave the White House as of noon on January 20, 2021.

The January 6 attack on the Capitol Building by hundreds of supporters who he had personally riled up at a Washington, D.C. rally earlier in the day prompted countless calls to remove him from office because of the clear and present danger he poses to the nation.

The attacks were so unspeakable that even the Wall Street Journal editorial board–notorious for its guanopsychotic far-right opinion columns–urged him to resign.

Many demanded that the House of Representatives impeach Trump a second time, even though he has less than two weeks left to go.

On January 6, Ilhan Omar, the Democrat who represents Minnesota’s 5th District, tweeted:

I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment. Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate. We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.

Impeaching and removing Trump–a procedure that can continue to completion even if he departs the White House before it’s done–would formally bar him from holding high public office in the future.

Things have moved quickly. Omar sent a pair of tweets late on January 7:

We will impeach!
Most likely tomorrow.

On the same day, New Jersey House Rep Jerry Nadler, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, announced he would support bypassing his committee’s role in the impeachment process to allow the matter to go to a full floor vote.


As of the morning of January 8, several news outlets reported that the House of Representatives could be ready to move ahead by the middle of next week.

And at least one sitting Senate Republican, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, publicly voiced a willingness to consider articles of impeachment that the House of Representatives might issue.

So! We need to strike while the iron is hot.

We are asking you to call your Members of Congress (MoCs) and ask them to support a second effort to impeach and remove Trump from office.

Do this even if all your MoCs are cobalt blue Democrats who are fully on board already.

Do this even if all your MoCs are ruby red pigheaded Republicans who never seem to hear what you say (they do, they’re just jerks).

Believe it or not, Celeste Pewter hasn’t yet written a script for this. We’ll take a stab at it.

Call your House Rep first, then your Senators.

Find their contact information here:

https://whoaremyrepresentatives.org

Before you call, check the MoC’s social media feeds, so you can comment on what they’ve publicly said, or failed to say.

And yes, sorry, you do need to call them. Social media messages carry no weight with them.

Call a district office rather than their D.C. office (they’ve gone home).

If you don’t get a live person, leave a voicemail.

If their voicemail is full, find the email function on their official Member of Congress website (not their campaign site), and send them a message through that.

Sample script, which you should feel free to adapt to your own needs and wishes:


“Dear House Rep/Senator <Lastname>, I am <Firstname Lastname> from <town, state, zip code>.

I am calling/emailing to support the effort to impeach and remove President Donald Trump.

I realize he has less than two weeks left on his presidency. I still want him gone as soon as possible.

<For solid Dems: I have seen your public statements in favor of impeachment and removal, and I appreciate them. You are doing exactly what I want you to do as my elected Congressional representative, and I encourage you to carry on.>

<For silent Dems or Rs, pro-Trump Rs, and really pro-Trump Rs: I note your lack of public comment on the situation/I note you’ve voiced some support for Trump, even now/I notice you voted in favor of overturning the 2020 election results, and I am disappointed. I am asking you to do what the Founding Fathers would want you to do, regardless of how it might make you feel, or how it might affect your political career.>

Trump’s incitement of the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6 makes him a clear and present danger to our country.

He spoke at a D.C. rally, riled tens of thousands of his keenest fans up, and told them to march on the Capitol as the House and the Senate readied to certify the results of the 2020 election.

He is directly responsible for the insurrection.

He is directly responsible for the deaths of four of his supporters, and the death of a member of the Capitol’s police force.

He is directly responsible for putting hundreds of Congresspeople and their staffs in mortal danger.

He has to go. He has to go NOW. And I want you to impeach and remove him.

It’s important to impeach and remove him, rather than invoke the 25th Amendment, because impeaching and removing him bars him from holding public office ever again.

It’s also important to deliver swift, clear, and overwhelming consequences to answer to such foul and grave acts.

If we don’t move with speed and force, other evil-minded people, here and abroad, might try something like this in the future. We can’t have that.

Thank you for considering my request.”

Bookmark the Full List of Republican Members of Congress Who Voted to Overturn the Results of the 2020 Election, So You Can Vote Them ALL Out

Bookmark the full list of Republican members of Congress who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election, so you can vote them ALL out when their terms are up.

Before the sun rose on January 7, 2021, Congress voted to certify the results of the 2020 election, which included the victory of Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Congress completed this task after Trump supporters swarmed and vandalized the Capitol building, forcing the legislators to escape to a secure location and wait out the chaos.

Four Trump supporters died during the insurrection. One was shot and ultimately killed by forces defending the building. The others succumbed to assorted medical emergencies.

Several Republicans who had voiced support for challenging the certifications of Electoral College votes from various states were chastened by the violence and withdrew their objections. (The original planned called for self-selected representatives to challenge the results for six states; before the insurrection, they were moving toward reducing it to two, Arizona and Pennsylvania.)

Others plowed ahead, determined to wound the oldest continuously functioning democracy in the world on behalf of a venal, foul, unfit wretch of a man who is unworthy of their support and will never show them an ounce of loyalty in return.

Those others who plowed ahead–all Republicans–should be hounded from Washington, D.C. and should never hold elected office ever again.

You know that ought to happen. We know that ought to happen. Frankly, it already should have happened.

It falls to us, the citizens, to make sure this happens.

It won’t be easy and it won’t be quick, but we have to flush every one of these evil-minded coup-fuelers from office and boot them from civic life. Every. One.

Below you will find a list of every sitting Member of Congress (MoCs) who supported this attack on our democracy.

Bookmark this page. Look it over. Learn their names. Think about what you can do to ensure their removal from Congress.

As we prepare this post in January 2021, it’s far too early to tell you who their Democratic challengers are, but no worries, we will update this story when the time comes.

The Senators who voted to overturn the 2020 election results–those who challenged the certified outcomes in Arizona or Pennsylvania or both–are:

Ted Cruz of Texas, who is up for re-election in 2024

Josh Hawley of Missouri, who is up for re-election in 2024

Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, who is up for re-election in 2026

John Kennedy of Louisiana, who is up for re-election in 2024

Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, who is up for re-election in 2026

Roger Marshall of Kansas, who is up for re-election in 2026

Rick Scott of Florida, who is up for re-election in 2024

Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, who is up for re-election in 2026

…you’ll notice that none of these Senators are due to run in 2022.

They’re hoping you’ll forget the events of January 6 and 7, 2021, and they’re also hoping you’ll forget what they did on those days.

Don’t forget. Bookmarking this page will help you remember.

As noted above, it’s too early for any of them to draw Democratic challengers. In the meantime, you can adapt the Home State, Swing State, Red State strategy for targeting the Seditious Eight.

In particular, look for organizations in Texas, Florida, Wyoming, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, and Kansas that approach newly eligible and traditionally neglected groups of voters and register them to vote.

Support these organizations, and support those that seek to defend and expand voting rights in those states.

(And, yes, watch for stories to appear on One Thing You Can Do about organizations in those states that do that sort of work, and please send us tips on relevant state organizations we should cover.)

Also consider supporting the Democratic Party organizations in these states, and help them prepare for upcoming elections.

Next up is the list of 140 Republican members of the House of Representatives who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Know that ALL 435 members of the House of Representatives face re-election in 2022, not just these folks.

When the people noted below start drawing Democratic challengers, we will update this page with those challengers’ websites and donation links.

As with the Republican Senators, it’s too early for these MoCs to have drawn Democratic challengers. In the meantime, you can focus on helping organizations in the House Reps’ home states that register people to vote and defend voting rights. You can also help those states’ Democratic Party organizations.

The members of the House of Representatives–again, all Republicans–who voted to overturn the 2020 election results are:

Robert Aderholt, Alabama’s 4th District

Mo Brooks, Alabama’s 5th District

Jerry Carl, Alabama’s 1st District

So… there’s that. Square that circle as you wish.

Self-advocacy 101: Find Your Congressional Representatives (Updated with a Tool for Finding State Legislators)

Self-advocacy 101: Find your Congressional representatives–now updated with a tool for finding state representatives.

One Thing You Can Do debuted on January 7, 2017. This was the first post we published:

https://onethingyoucando.com/2020/01/07/self-advocacy-101-find-your-congressional-representatives-3/

Traditionally, we repost that story on our anniversary. This time, we’re offering the link plus more useful information.

We have since learned about Openstates.org, a tool that lets you plug in your zip code and find your state legislators. It also helps you find and track state legislation.

You’ll find it invaluable when following the Home State, Swing State, Red State strategy.

Adopt a New Strategy: Home State, Swing State, Red State

Adopt a new strategy: Home State, Swing State, Red State.

It’s a new year, and soon enough, we’ll have a new presidential administation (Hooray! You helped make that happen!).

It’s also time for a new approach.

Trump will leave the White House shortly, but he won’t disappear. Nor will his diehards who refuse to wrap their heads around the fact that their guy was legitimately voted out.

Worse, Trump’s time as president provided proof-of-concept to smarter, more devious politicians that authoritarianism can make headway in the United States.

That’s what we have to push back against now: not just Trump, but Trumpism and the dangerous, anti-democracy mindset it reflects.

We also learned much from the 2020 Senate races, with the chief lesson being is it’s entirely possible for an individual candidate to have too much money. Diminishing returns are a thing.

We also note the stellar work of Stacey Abrams and the network she spent years building and honing in Georgia, which helped deliver her state to presidential candidate Joe Biden. (This post is being written before voting closes in the January 5, 2021 Georgia Senate runoff races; we hope good news arrives on that front.)

Thinking over all those facts, sleeping on them, then thinking about them again, leads us to hatch a new strategy for activism.

We’re calling it Home State, Swing State, Red State.

If we’re going to keep Trump and his wannabes from killing democracy, we need to continue pushing back.

2021 is not an off-year for elections. There’s no such thing anymore.

We need to spend the less-intense years doing what Stacey Abrams did in Georgia.

We need to build, refurbish, and maintain the infrastructure of democracy.

Hence Home State, Swing State, Red State.

The phrase lays out where you should direct your activism, in ranked order.

Start with your Home State.

You should spend the most energy and effort on your Home State–the American state or territory in which you live. Your Home State should always come first.

Knowing your Home State means knowing who your elected representatives are on the federal, state, and local levels.

Know their names, know their office numbers, know their email addresses, and know which social media platforms they’re on and follow them there.

Know how long they’ve been in office.

Know what they’ve done, what they’re doing, and what they promised to do when they campaigned.

Know when they’re up for re-election.

Supporting your Home State also requires you to find out what local organizations support your community.

We speak here of mutual aid societies, food banks, entities that register people to vote, Indivisible chapters, civic cleanup crews–if it exists to make the place where you live better, check it out.

If you’re not already a member of such a group, look at what’s available near you, pick one, and give it what you can under the circumstances (which, as of January 2021, means the COVID-19 pandemic continues to curtail in-person meetings and events).

In particular, look for a local organization, or a local chapter of a state organization, that’s attempting to do what Stacey Abrams did in Georgia with the New Georgia Project.

…and if the organization you’re looking for doesn’t exist? Create it!

Lastly, check out your Home State’s Democratic party organization and consider how you can support it.

Maybe you become a monthly donor. Maybe you join the local chapter. Maybe you run for office. Or, hey, ask them what they need most in your part of the state and see if you can meet that need.

Supporting your Home State means subscribing to a local newspaper. Learn what’s going on where you live.

Bringing yourself up to speed on your Home State… that takes effort. If you can only focus on one part of the strategy, focus on the Home State part.

Even if your Home State is thoroughly and reliably blue and big-D Democratic, you should concentrate your efforts there first and foremost, always.

If you have your Home State well-in-hand, you can consider adding a Swing State to your plate.

We’re defining “Swing State” as one that could go Democratic or Republican, depending.

During the 2020 election, the following states were considered Swing States:

Pennsylvania

Texas

Florida

North Carolina

Arizona

Michigan

Wisconsin

Georgia

If you have the bandwidth to adopt a Swing State for the long term in addition to your Home State, please do.

If your Home State is also a Swing State, you can, as the old saying goes, kill two birds with one stone. If you prefer to adopt a second state as a Swing State, you’re free to do that.

The procedure for adopting a Swing State doesn’t differ much from bringing yourself up to speed on your Home State–learn who the representatives are (rely on others who live in the Swing State to tell you about state and local representatives to watch), subscribe to a relevant newspaper, connect with a local group such as an Indivisible chapter and follow its work–that sort of thing.

You should also look for organizations dedicated to registering citizens to vote and turning out the vote. In other words, look for organizations that attempt to do what Stacey Abrams did in Georgia.

In addition, check out the Swing State’s Democratic Party and think about how you can assist it.

If you’re doing well with serving your Home State plus a Swing State, and you feel you can take on more, consider adding a Red State.

Red States are those that reliably vote for Republicans.

They include:

Alaska

South Carolina

West Virginia

Alabama

Kentucky

Tennessee

Mississippi

Louisiana

Arkansas

Missouri

Oklahoma

Kansas

Utah

Nebraska

North Dakota

South Dakota

Wyoming

Montana

Idaho

Adopting a Red State differs a little from picking a Swing State or mastering your Home State.

As with the Swing State, you should acquaint yourself with the federal-level elected representatives, and ask activists living in the Red State for help with identifying state and local representatives to watch. You should subscribe to a newspaper that covers the state, or at least follow the paper on social media platforms.

The most important thing with a Red State is identifying a local activist organization to connect with and support. It can be a chapter of Indivisible, an organization that wants to follow the playbook Stacey Abrams wrote, or something similar.

You contribute by acting as an ally and a cheerleader. This goes double if your Home State is a blue state.

Activists in Red States need our support. It can be lonely fighting the good fight when you’re surrounded by Trump fans.

Don’t lapse into telling Red Staters what to do, or drift into blathering about how your Home State does things better. Stand firm alongside your Red State friends, and stand firm for them.

If your Home State happens to be a Red State, it’s your call–you can count it for both, or you can choose a second Red State.

…and that’s it, really. Learn what’s going on where you live, stay involved, and be ready to act. Do the work of creating and shoring up the infrastructure of democracy so it will hold up under the pressure of an election year, and so it will be there when a top-drawer Democratic candidate needs it.

Go to meetings. Read. Take notes. Give time and money to these organizations if you can, when you can.

Show up. Be there. Rehearse. Learn. Be ready for next time.

Help Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff Win Their Georgia Senate Runoffs on January 5, 2021

Help Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win their Georgia Senate Runoffs on January 5, 2021.

Two days until the Big Day. Just two. That’s it.

Losing all those Senate seats we thought we would win in November–that was a huge blow.

Fortunately, we weren’t completely out of luck. We got a silver lining in the form of the two runoffs for still-open Senate seats in Georgia.

If we can help propel Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to victory, we take the Senate majority leadership out of Mitch McConnell’s hands.

We need this. Keep working for this. It’s worth it.

Help Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win their Georgia Senate Runoffs on January 5, 2021.

Here we are! January 1, 2021. Brand new year. How about we wrangle ourselves a brand new Senate to go with it?

One that, you know, WORKS. One that won’t block our new president at every turn, just because.

One that won’t withhold aid to citizens suffering in a once-in-a-century pandemic.

One that isn’t controlled by GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

We can do this if we can help Georgia voters elect Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the pair of open Senate seats on January 5, 2021.

Getting one candidate across the line won’t do it. Both have to win to wrest the gavel from McConnell.

Pitch in to this effort and keep pitching in. It’s worth it.
