Today’s Action: Get out the vote for Democratic Senate candidate Mandela Barnes!

Polls leading up to the election have shown incumbent Republican Senator and noted coup-enthusiast Ron Johnson with a razor-thin lead over his progressive Democratic challenger, Mandela Barnes. With control of the US Senate hanging in the balance this Tuesday, we need every available progressive to step up and help Barnes defeat Johnson on November 8th. Phone banking is one of the best ways that you can help get out the vote in this upcoming election — luckily, plenty of organizations are still hosting virtual events you can join right from your couch!  Barnes has been polling neck and neck with the Trump lackey throughout the summer. You can be the difference-maker this election!

The margin of error for retaining Democratic control of the House and Senate is far too close for comfort. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Wisconsin to join this fight. Just be ready to do good work!

Working Families Party is hosting a text banking for Mandela Barnes TODAY from 4-6PM EDT. If you have the capacity to attend, the voters you reach could push Barnes over the top and help secure a crucial Democratic pickup in the Senate.

Our work does not stop in Wisconsin. There are progressives all across the country that need your help getting out the vote. Filter through virtual phone and text-banking events through Mobilize. Critical issues and fundamental freedoms are on the line this election, including reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun safety initiatives, and climate mitigation — everything we’ve worked so tirelessly for. Do your part for a truly progressive future!
