How You Can Help Stacey Abrams Take The Senate From Republicans
Should-be Georgia governor and sudden progressive power broker Stacey Abrams looks likely to deliver an unexpected win to Joe Biden in the state of Georgia. But she’s got her eyes on the bigger prize of ditching Mitch McConnell on January 5, 2021.
And you can help her end Republican rule in the Senate. Abrams has a plan to win both Georgia Senate seats up for grabs in the January 5 runoff election, thereby delivering the Senate to Democratic control, and possibly undoing the damage of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s massively unqualified Supreme Court replacement.

Abrams appeared on Monday night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as seen above, the first episode of that show after Donald Trump lost the presidential election. “I had about 17 minutes on Saturday afternoon” to celebrate, Abrams said. “I’m good. Got to get back to work.”
Georgia, thank you. Together, we have changed the course of our state for the better. But our work is not done.

Abrams is running two nonprofits that were critical to swinging Georgia to the Democratic presidential candidate for the first time in nearly 20 years. Both of those nonprofits could still use your help to elect Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, and swing the Senate out of Republican control.

The New Georgia Project is aimed at mobilizing “people of color, those 18 to 29 years of age, and unmarried women” to vote, despite that state’s history of voter suppression. Even if you live thousands of miles away from Georgia, you can donate to Stacey Abrams’ New Georgia Project, or volunteer with the New Georgia Project doing remote phone banking or data entry work.

Her other nonprofit Fair Fight is going all-out to prevent Republican dirty tricks. “From illegal voter purges to hundreds of poll closures to four-hour lines, Georgia voters have faced a sophisticated, but hauntingly familiar, attack on their right to vote,“ the site says. Fair Fight could also use donations, and national volunteers outside Georgia.
Stacey Abrams' organization Fair Fight has now raised $9.8 million since Friday evening, an aide says, with the bulk of that haul going to Democratic Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. https://t.co/Eg0zMimuVG

It could prove to be a massive tactical error that Republicans are obsessively fighting longshot attacks to keep Trump in office instead of focusing on the Georgia Senate races. Stacey Abrams is all about winning those two Georgia races, and we can all help get her inspiring efforts over the finish line.
