Lean Left Vermont Weekly Action Update!

Obviously, we’re thrilled with the results from Tuesday. The work isn’t over, but it’s a huge lift for our spirits to see US voters from so many parts of the country turn against GOP extremism.

Thank you for everything you’ve done to help shore up our democracy.
We’ll be back in touch with information about Lean Left Vermont’s future direction, but until then ….there is Georgia. 

The breaking news this weekend that Mark Kelly won in Arizona and Catherine Cortez Masto won in Nevada is a good sign, but Georgia’s runoff election on December 6 will make or break a secure hold in the Senate because it will be a hedge against mischief-making Joe Manchin.

In the coming weeks, all eyes will be on this state! That means tens of thousands of volunteers will be calling, texting, and canvassing voters. Be strategic about where you put your money and your time. Join Lean Left as we reach out to specific populations of voters with two proven and well-run organizations.

Make calls with the Environmental Voter Project to turn out environmental voters. EVP estimates that over 8 million environmentalists did not vote in the 2020 presidential election, and over 12 million skipped the 2018 midterms. Here is more information about why EVP is a good strategic choice. 

Make calls with NextGen Organizing to turn out young voters! Exit polls on Tuesday showed voters in the 18-29 age bracket making up about 12-13% of the vote and preferring Democrats. This age group will be critical in Georgia. NextGen is calling young Georgia voters **daily** to help them cast their ballot for this crucial runoff election! 

Text with NexGen Organizing and reach out to young people to help them make a plan to vote for the December 6 Runoff Election! We know that building the power of the youth vote is crucial to our democracy, and that starts by getting youth to the polls during elections.
