The final election day for the Georgia run-off election is Jan. 5th, and the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is doing M.O.R.E: Mobilizing, Organizing, Registering, and Educating people for a movement that votes. We are a non-partisan organization interested in suffrage expansion for all people, especially for poor and low-income persons.

The Poor People’s Campaign invites you to join us in textbanking for the critical Georgia
run-off elections. Training will include an overview of the texting platform, ThruText,
a focus on how this work connects to our larger campaign goals, and demonstration and time to practice using the technology.

Through this textbank, you will help GA voters to develop a voting plan and connect them to the Georgia chapter of the Poor People’s Campaign.

You only need to be trained once. After you are trained, you will receive a schedule of Virtual Gatherings that you can join that will not include a training component.

ABOUT: Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/about/our-principles/

Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is building a movement to overcome systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and the war economy.

We recognize the need to organize at the state and local level—many of the most regressive policies are being passed at the state level, and these policies will have long and lasting effect, past even executive orders. The movement is not from above but below.

We do our work in a non-partisan way—no elected officials or candidates get the stage or serve on the State Organizing Committee of the Campaign. This is not about left and right, Democrat or Republican but about right and wrong.

Everybody's got a right to live!
