Phone Bank for Raphael Warnock for Senate in Georgia
December 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 22, 2020
While the presidential race is thankfully over, control of the Senate remains at stake, and will come down to the results of a special election this January in Georgia. The Senate has been a graveyard for pro-peace legislation coming out of the House these past two years, so the urgency in this election is sky-high. This is the final push, and we need your help to ensure the make up of the new Senate is as pro-peace as possible.
Peace Action is thrilled to endorse Reverend Raphael Warnock for the Senate in Georgia. He’s running against self-described “conservative Republican” Kelly Loeffler. Loeffler’s only been in office since January 6th, 2020 after being appointed to this seat, and has never actually won an election.
Join phone banks! Peace Action will participate on Tuesdays 11/24, 12/1, 12/8, 12/15, 12/22 from 5-8pm. Sign up to phone bank: https://www.mobilize.us/
While in office, Loeffler has regularly boasted about her voting with Trump 100% of the time. Conversely, Rev. Warnock preaches out of the very same church pulpit as Martin Luther King Jr., and couldn’t be more different than his pro-war opponent. Rev. Warnock should be a solid pro-peace champion for Peace Action in the Senate, but we need to make sure he gets there. He evokes his worldview around peace and justice issues when he states “Dr. King talked about war and some are beating the drums of war even tonight. Pray for our nation, but as you think about the geopolitical situation, let us resist the demons of militarism that disturb our domestic situation.” Help us flip this seat on the way to flipping the Senate with a pro-peace gift for Rev. Warnock today!
There are life and death issues at stake in the Senate. Issues like ending U.S. arms sales and military support to Saudi Arabia for its brutal assault on Yemen. At long last officially ending the Korean War. Reengaging on nuclear issues with Iran and repealing devastating U.S. sanctions. Ending the forever wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. Repealing the 2002 Authorization For the Use of Military Force in Iraq. Reversing new nuclear weapons development and adopting a No First Use policy. Cutting massively wasteful Pentagon spending. These are significant votes that could have a profoundly positive impact on millions of lives. Now imagine two more years of trying to meet these challenges and others, like the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustices, climate change, etc. with Mitch McConnell and company in the Senate stalling, obstructing, and blocking EVERYTHING.
