Overview

Canvassers and Team Leaders  –  Help Georgians Flip the Senate!

Hiring Immediately –  $20-22/hr, Full-time & Part-time

Georgia will be deciding two important Senate races in January.  We’re working with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union’s Working Families Advocacy Project to elect Reverend Warnock and Jon Ossoff to represent Georgia in the US Senate – two candidates who will support working families, make sure people have affordable health care, and that people with pre-existing conditions are covered.

Just as importantly, these two races will decide the fate for the entire country of who will control the US Senate. It will mean the difference between President-Elect Biden having a Senate he can work with, or one controlled by Mitch McConnell that will stonewall Biden’s agenda to help all Americans.

Every person should have a voice in these critical elections and that is why we are talking to voters door-to-door to make a vote plan and be sure they help flip the Senate!
