#DougJones supporters: Turning out voters of color in #Alabama is key, so it’s important to give to the local orgs that are working on that. A thread.
The last day to register to vote in #Alabama is 11/27; the special election is 12/12. Make this ask at your Thanksgiving table! If people who see this thread in their feed each gave $10, efforts would be funded.
Black Church VOTE is a black faith-based organizing program started that needs funding to run church GOTV and expand black radio and digital advertising. Donate: secure.actblue.com/donate/blackch…
Black Campus/HBCU VOTE is running large GOTV programs at Alabama's 12 Historic Black Colleges & Universities and within the black & progressive subsets of the larger state schools. They need additional funds to close their budget gap. Donate: secure.actblue.com/donate/gamecha…
Faith in Action Alabama is a social justice oriented faith-based community organizing network that needs additional funds to contact 20,000 voters in 4 cities (Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile and Huntsville). Donate: secure.actblue.com/donate/faith-i…
The Democratic Victory Fund is reaching out to Alabama voters who may be victims of Alabama’s voter suppression efforts. They have a short window to re-register. Donate: act.myngp.com/Forms/-4398467…
Donations to these orgs will not only help this race, but will also help build up infrastructure in the state, which is needed for lasting change. These are grassroots GOTV efforts run by amazing individuals rooted in #Alabama. Thank you for your generosity! #HappyThanksgiving

I just learned about a type of gerrymandering that blows my mind. A thread. (With real action at the end, I promise! Silver lining coming.)
Catching up on #PodSavethePeople with @deray, @samswey, @MsPackyetti + @ClintSmithIII. A thing that the Census Bureau is doing: Making residence rules for incarcerated people so that their legal home residences don’t matter, but the locations where they are incarcerated do.
This means that even though incarcerated folks can’t vote, their bodies are being counted in the communities where they are imprisoned rather than in their home areas. This is called Prison-based gerrymandering.
