Wave of the Week-Archived-10-13

Each week, Together for 2020 offers you an action, an event and a candidate to explore —
Three ways to get involved in shaping the upcoming elections. Become part of the Blue Wave!


Sprint to the Finish

The finish line is in sight, but we can’t let up now.

Find out how you can contact voters in swing states to make sure they vote. Phone banking, texting, social media posting – all will make the difference in just a few weeks.

Join Together for 2020’s Sprint to the Finish: Climb the Final Summit, as we focus on three states that are crucial to elect Joe Biden and flip the Senate: Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Florida. Learn exactly what we need to do to swing these states blue.

The event features our own Sen. Ed Markey live, as well as other special guests.

Don’t forget to invite your friends.

Fri., Oct. 16, 7–8:15 p.m. EDT


Relational Organizing
Get Ready to Roll

A tactic called relational organizing was instrumental in the election of President Barack Obama. It’s a formal name for a simple, direct, effective action that involves reaching out to friends and acquaintances to make a plan to vote and volunteer.

Reach out via phone, text, or email, whatever method you think will work best.

We have created an easy-to-use action kit that will help you create and execute your plan. We connect you with training, identify the key states, and provide you with plenty of information on guiding people to volunteer. Click the blue button below.

Also, please save the date: Monday, Oct. 19, 7 p.m. EDT, for the kickoff of Together for 2020’s own drive to promote this highly effective effort. Next week’s Wave of the Week will include more details.


Rev. Raphael Warnock & Jon Ossoff for Georgia

It’s a genuine two-fer. Meet two fine candidates who can help flip Georgia at this Force Multiplier event. Both Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate are running stronger and stronger as the election nears.

The Rev. Raphael Warnock is the inspiring senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, once the pulpit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is running in a special election in a crowded field. Recent polls show Warnock has the best chance of beating Republican Kelly Loeffler, pariah of the WNBA for her work against transgender athletes and Black Lives Matter.

Jon Ossoff, investigative journalist and media executive, has been endorsed by the late great John Lewis and the Georgia State Legislative Black Caucus. He is running against single-term Republican Sen. David Perdue, who is showing electoral vulnerability.

Support for Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Warnock will also help Democrats up and down the ballots in a state that has competitive races for the White House, the House of Representatives, and the state legislature.
