Have you plugged into any of the hot elections around the country yet? I’m reaching out today to ask you to join us as a volunteer, from the comfort of your home, in our Peace Voter 2022 candidates’ campaign.
Here at Peace Action we’ve picked the close, competitive races where there are huge gaps between the pro-peace candidates we’re supporting and their far-right election denier opponents. It’s mid-September. If you want to take action in this election season, now is the right time!
Even just a couple hours, taking action at home, can help gain votes in a whisker close race. Signing up on the form puts you on the list as a potential volunteer. There are a myriad of ways to volunteer including phonebanking and sending texts and the like. We’ll reach out to you to help you plug into some of the most important races in the country.
Democracy and foreign policy, war, and nuclear weapons are inextricably linked. If Democracy further erodes in this country, the risk of nuclear war increases. Decisions around war and the use of nuclear weapons are already far too undemocratic. We’re fighting to change that. But if we don’t have better representation there is only so far we can go.
I know we are all so busy in our lives. But, as you well know, this is a pivotal moment for our country. It’s time to step up.
We’ll be taking action for pro-peace candidates like Mandela Barnes, who has been a Wisconsin Peace Action member, against incumbent senator Ron Johnson who tried to push the fake electors scam to steal the 2020 election. We’re backing John Fetterman in Pennsylvania, Rev. Warnock in Georgia and many, many other close races. Please join us.
