There was one bright spot from the 2016 election. Sam Park became the first openly gay man elected to the Georgia state legislature representing Lawrenceville outside Atlanta in the Georgia House of Representatives. He won his Election by a mere 460 votes, defeating a 4-term Republican incumbent. Now the Republicans are investing heavily to take back the seat this November. We have an opportunity to stop the Republicans and keep Sam in office. And, as we're calling with the Georgia Coordinated Campaign, these calls also help to elect Stacey Abrams, the first Black woman in the US to be nominated by a major party for Governor.
We'll also focus on swing states in the US Senate. With competitive races happening all across the country, it’s important we call voters in battleground states to make sure Democrats keep the seats they already have in order to secure a Senate majority in 2018!
We’re open from 1pm–5pm Sunday; feel free to stop by at whatever time works best for you. Don't worry, if you've never done phone banks before we will train you on-site.
Bring a charged cell phone AND a laptop, iPad, or tablet.If you don't have a laptop or tablet, please contact email@example.com and we may have a spare you can use. (We can always use more laptops, so if you have a spare one you'd be willing to share, please bring it with you.)
If you’re driving, it’s usually very easy to find parking around 23rd Street and Tennessee Street. On Muni, take the T Third line inbound (outbound if you’re coming from Bayview) and get off at the stop on 3rd Street at 23rd Street.
If you have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
