Chop Wood, Carry Water 11/10
Hi, all, and happy Thursday!
I was planning on taking today and tomorrow off, but here I am. Just a couple of things, because they’re important.
First, read this. You’ll be happy.
We are going to hold the Senate, y’all. I can feel it. And I still haven’t given up on the House!
Anyway. Here’s a bit of business. Then let’s take a long weekend. Thank you so much for all of the kind comments and emails. And my God, to the person who brought me dinner on Sunday night, I’m still beaming with gratitude. THIS is the kind of thing that makes me love this community so much.
I am so, so proud and honored to be among your number.
Send an Email to Defund Twitter!
Please email Procter and Gamble's CEO to demand that they suspend ads on Twitter until the platform is made better for marginalized communities. Personalizing will make it more likely he reads it. Thanks!
Keep Curing Ballots!
It’s so, so important. I am hearing about statehouse races that are down to a difference of two votes. THIS IS CRITICAL! We can win elections this way. Please sign up for a shift.
There are three really amazing-sounding events tonight—all happening at the exact same time, of course 🙄. Take your pick:
Environmental Voter Project special briefing on the Georgia US Senate Runoff TONIGHT at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. Learn about their Georgia data, as well as the opportunities and challenges they see over the next 26 days. This runoff is crucially important, and it's a great opportunity for you to have an impact. Please RSVP here.
Join Focus 4 Democracy for a special briefing on the Georgia Runoff TONIGHT, Thursday, Nov. 10th at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern. They’ll share their recommendations for the most cost-effective programs for the runoff (programs that can together produce more votes than Ossoff’s 2020 margin). These groups need commitments quickly in order to maximize their impact. Please click here to register.
Join Indivisible TONIGHT, November 10 at 8pm ET/5pm PT for their election debrief call, where they’ll discuss where we stand now and their plans for what’s next for their movement.
Georgia, Georgia, Georgia!
Lots of you are writing to ask how you can help with the Georgia runoff. All 3 of the above events will give you great info about that, but here’s a bit more.

Activate America is about to launch their GA postcarding effort. E-mail AnnaMartin@activateamerica.vote to be added to their list so you’ll be the first to hear when this campaign launches.
The Center For Common Ground will be launching postcarding and phonebanking into GA in the next 24 hours. Sign up here so you hear about these efforts right away.
SURJ (Showing Up For Racial Justice) has several texting and phonebanking sessions already scheduled to help us win in GA. Sign up for one or more here.
