Holiday Cheer - Persist Brooklyn's unstoppable Crafts Team expressed their gratitude to Loretta Agro’s 2005 Dodge Neon for miles of hauling tables, chairs, postcards, craft supplies and pumpkins. She has been called the “Democracy Mobile” for a year. Now it is official!
2020 may feel never-ending, and the 2020 election cycle has to be the longest in recent memory but we're. almost. there!!! Everyone who donated, phone-banked, texted, or organized for campaigns this year has so much to be proud of and if we all put in just one more shift we can bring it home. Start 2021 off right by making one more hour of calls or one more donation to keep Georgia blue. Since November, our community has raised an incredible nearly $35,000 for Rev. Warnock, Jon Ossoff, and 5 grassroots organizations on the ground in Georgia. If you or a friend is inspired to make one more contribution, you can do so here. Dream big!
