Flipping the Senate in 2020 is a high priority in order to protect our democracy. The Republicans keep proving just how untrustworthy they are in that regard, so they must go. And in pursuit of that goal, we have a great ally who has jumped in the fight.
Yes, Indivisible is turning their considerable organizing power towards flipping the Senate. This project is called the Payback Project and the rallying cry is, “Get angry. Then get even.“ I like that.
Their targets are: Arizona, Colorado, Georgia (2), Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.
One of the founders of Indivisible recorded a podcast recently where they talked about the project in depth. You can listen to it HERE.
There are three ways for us to get involved:
- If you are in one of those states, volunteer. They will be pouring new resources into the Indivisible groups in those states so they can do more organizing. The focus is getting voters engaged and making sure they turn out to the polls.
- Text banking. They are offering training on how to send the voter-to-voter messages (through a platform, so you aren’t using your own phone number) right now. Any of us can do this, regardless of location.
- Donate. Their goal is to raise $1 million towards this effort and the last time I checked, they had gotten donations from nearly all of the states. One of the first things they will do is buy ads in local newspapers to raise awareness of just how awful those Senators are.
If you are interested in helping out in one of these ways, or simply want to know more and keep abreast of what they’re planning, then sign up HERE.
