WEEK OF DECEMBER 21, 2020
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OUR
WE LOVE YOU AND WE NEED YOU!
PERSIST AND RESIST!
You KNOW what you need to do…..
Great thanks to Mike Konopacki!
IT’S STILL ABOUT GEORGIA!
WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
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. Join the Fight. Best place to put your money to get staff on the ground. Stacy’s group knows how to do this.
Fair Fight is Fighting Back
IF YOU COULDN’T MAKE THE SJC LEGISLATIVE DELEGATION FRIDAY, INDIVISIBLE WAS THERE. THANKS TO CHRIS MCDERMOTT FOR MAKING THE CASE ABOUT OUR CONCERNS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, HOME RULE AND FOR OUR LEGISLATORS TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES ON THESE POPULAR LOCAL ISSUES.
Listen to Chris (Just over 10 minutes at the end of over 2 hours!) HERE
Thank you Chris! Difficult circumstances. Outliers always get put at the end as time runs out. Been there, done that.

OK OK WE KNOW IT’S THE HOLIDAYS.
STILL, WE HAVE TO STAY ON TOP OF THIS:
Demand Ron DeSantis Stop the Combating Violence, Disorder & Looting & Law Enforcement Protection Act
Oppose the Governor’s proposed bill that protects those who would interfere with peaceful protests and abridge our Constitutionally guaranteed rights to freedom of assembly and to petition the government for redress of grievances.
BECAUSE, HERE’S A REPORT FROM GEORGETOWN LAW ABOUT MILITIAS IN THE U.S. WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET:
ALRIGHT, ENOUGH TO PONDER FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
However you celebrate this year, make it the one to remember!
Stay home, stay in touch, stay healthy.
As always, email us with your ideas and critiques. We have much to do in 2021, a new DEC and hopefully new Senate. Let us hear from you!
