POSTCARDS

Get out the vote in DeKalb
The DeKalb County Democrats have asked SLGB volunteers to apply their successful experiences to writing inconsistent voters who DID vote on November 3. The postcards thank them for voting and ask them to vote AGAIN in the runoffs on January 5.
Call to action

Pick one (or two?) of many opportunities to get infrequent voters back to the polls!

VOTER PROTECTION

Stop voter suppression
SLGB is teaming with voter protection experts VoPro Pros on the January Senate Runoff Election. We’re recruiting and scheduling canvassers for door-to-door ballot cure, as well as verifying info for mailers to all 129 counties.

Behind the scenes, SLGB volunteers and VoPro Pros are helping with coordination, data entry, training, backend logistics, and other support activities for both the Ossoff and Warnock campaigns.

UPDATE ON PEACEKEEPING

Hear from on-the ground volunteers
If you attended the first in the Travelers' Tales series, you heard from Bob Masters and Dan Luken, the Vietnam vets who protected the vote count in Detroit. Now, they’re on the ground in Macon, GA, as part of the Election Defenders’ peacekeeping mission.

They news from Macon is good! Black voting rights groups are well organized: handing out coffee, donuts, Doritos, rain ponchos, you name it. People are energized, and spirits are high. So many friendly, mask-wearing faces -- and no MAGA hats!
Call to action

Hear from other on-the-ground volunteers on Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm.
