December 14th – 20th, I will be hosting a fundraiser over at Mister Domestic Fundraiser Instagram Page for the Georgia Senate Runoffs. The future of both the Senate and America is at stake. To donate items, please follow the instructions in the link in fundraiser profile here to submit an item for the fundraiser or click here. All proceeds will benefit the charities listed below. Please donate generously.
- Fair Fight Action: Fair Fight is Fighting Back. 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. Hundreds of thousands of voters were affected by poor election management and systematic voter suppression, crippling Georgia’s democracy. @fairfightaction
- NAACPGA: The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. @georgia_naacpga
Thank you the many makers who have donated for this fundraiser. My general philosophy when it comes to helping is that if you can, you should and it’s clear many other humans agree. Please share this blog post on your social media to help spread the word.
Why Are the Georgia Run-offs So Important?
The races pit two Republican incumbents, Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, against Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock. If both Democrats win the seats, it’ll split the Senate 50-50, leaving Harris as the tie-breaker. The other way around will give Republicans control of the Senate, and even if one of the Republicans win, it could limit Biden’s ability to pass legislation and it may interfere with the president-elect’s cabinet picks.
