It’s been four years since Trump catalyzed this movement. And now he is gone, or will be soon. Undeniably, there is still work to be done. But it’s okay to celebrate this moment. Savor it. Remember what it feels like to win. Carry that feeling with you in the months and years ahead. You will need it.
Trump’s defeat is a win for Democracy and a blow to authoritarians worldwide. But Trumpism is alive and well, and Trump’s enablers in Texas—like John Cornyn, Michael McCaul, Chip Roy, and Roger Williams—held onto their seats. Many of these losses were heartbreaking. Will we forgive them for their cowardice? Hell, no. Will we keep fighting? Hell, yes.

John Cornyn may have claimed victory but the Senate could still be ours, as both Senate seats in Georgia head for runoff elections on Tuesday, January 5. Below are some organizations dedicated to flipping Georgia and taking back the Senate.
Stacey Abrams’ organization promoting fair elections in Georgia and around the country, encouraging voter participation in elections, and educating voters about elections and their voting rights.
Black Voters Matter’s goal is to increase power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities. Effective voting allows a community to determine its own destiny. We agree with the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
GALEO’s mission is to increase civic engagement and leadership of the Latino/Hispanic community across Georgia.
Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta is the first and only nonprofit legal advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the civil rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in Georgia and the Southeast.

Thank you to the Democratic candidates who stepped up to the plate against incumbents entrenched in gerrymandered districts: Especially Mike Siegel, Julie Oliver, Rick Kennedy, and Wendy Davis—as well as all the TX Lege candidates who sought to flip the Texas House. The power you built power in Central Texas will pay dividends for years. Texas will flip and it will be because of good, fearless people like you.
