Support Jimmy Flannigan and Alison Alter in the Tuesday runoff elections

Tuesday, December 15 is Election Day for two city council runoffs, and Jimmy Flannigan and Alison Alter need your support fending off far-right challengers. There is always a massive dropoff in voter turnout between general elections and runoffs, which allows a very small group of people to determine the outcome. It is imperative that voters in Districts 6 & 10 show up to vote, and that the rest of us support the incumbents in every way we can.

Demand that John Cornyn and Ted Cruz pass a COVID relief bill

The virus is surging while aid is expiring for millions of people, and Congress needs to pass relief as soon as possible. That’s why we need you to call your Senators and Representatives to demand they pass a COVID relief bill before the end of the year session without McConnell’s poison pill provisions. We need to get the pandemic under control and support people being impacted by the economic crisis. The pandemic isn’t waiting, and neither should Congress. Relief can’t wait.

Tell Cornyn and Cruz to pass COVID relief now
