Today’s Action: Get out the vote for John Fetterman!

John Fetterman is the Democratic candidate for the most flippable US Senate seat in the country and the only Pennsylvanian running for the Pennsylvania race. We need all hands on deck across the country to help secure his victory. Fetterman, the Keystone State’s current lieutenant governor, spent 13 years as the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, where he passionately served the people of his community. He has long been a dedicated progressive, even going so far as to officiate one of the first same-sex marriages in Pennsylvania when state laws at the time continued to push antiquated and discriminatory policies.

The margin of error for keeping the Senate in Democratic hands is far too thin for comfort, but we can take action to ensure we keep power and continue advancing our critical progressive agenda. Democrats’ path to keeping Mitch McConnell from another disastrous run as Senate majority leader runs right through Pennsylvania. Phone-banking is one of the most effective ways you can pitch in from afar. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional; just be ready to do good work.

Our Revolution is hosting phone banks for John Fetterman’s race EVERY WEDNESDAY from 6:30-8:30 PM EDT until Election Day. If you can take part in just one session, the voters you reach could help tip the scales and flip  Pennsylvania.

The fight for a truly progressive future does not end with Fetterman. There are committed Democratic candidates all across the country that need your help getting out the vote next month. You can filter through virtual phone- and text-banking events through Mobilize. So many critical issues are on the line this election — reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform — everything we’ve fought so hard for! It’s never been more important to get out the vote and work for real change in America. Join the fight and do your part today!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
