Here we go, Georgia!
We have 32 days until the Senate run-off elections here in Georgia. We're working hard to ensure Democrats, Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock win their seats and that the Senate turns blue. Our favorite organization, Fair Fight, is working like mad to get out the vote, and we wanted to help them any way we can.
So, we made some new socks!
Introducing our Flip It Socks. Besides the Senate, what can you flip? Pancakes, a house, a flip phone, a flip chart, the bird, so many things!
And just like our VOTE socks, all proceeds of these socks go straight to Fair Fight! So far you’ve helped us raise $17,208 and we’re hoping to get that to a nice even $20k ASAP so they can put it to use. (or, even more - if they all sell!) Since we have only a small window of time, we made a smaller run, and won’t have time for a restock. So grab em, get extras as gifts, and let’s help FLIP IT
ONE SIZE. Fits a Women's size 6-10
Knit in North Carolina
75% COTTON / 21% NYLON / 4% LYCRA
We're thrilled to say that 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these socks will be donated to Stacey Abrams' Fair Fight organization. As politically-minded Georgians, we're massive fans of Stacey Abrams and believe the work done by Fair Fight is essential to true, lasting change in our country. If you aren't familiar with their work, below is more information about all they do to fight for fair and free elections.
Thanks for helping us send some love their way and help more people have access to voting rights.
Fair Fight promotes fair elections in Georgia and around the country, encourages voter participation in elections, and educates voters about elections and their voting rights. Fair Fight brings awareness to the public on election reform, advocates for election reform at all levels, and engages in other voter education programs and communications.
Voter suppression of voters of color and young voters is a scourge our country faces in states across the nation. Georgia’s 2018 elections shone a bright light on the issue with elections that were rife with mismanagement, irregularities, unbelievably long lines and more, exposing both recent and also decades-long actions and inactions by the state to thwart the right to vote. Georgians and Americans are fighting back. Fair Fight Action engages in voter mobilization and education activities and advocates for progressive issues; in addition, Fair Fight Action has mounted significant programs to combat voter suppression in Georgia and nationally.
Fair Fight PAC has initiated programs to support voter protection programs at state parties around the country and is engaging in partnerships to support and elect pro voting rights, progressive leaders.
Nearly 30,000 voters were forced to vote on a provisional ballot, most of which did not count.
Thousands of absentee ballot applications were lost or rejected, disenfranchising voters, particularly voters of color.
53,000+ voter registrations were held hostage in “pending” status. 80 percent of these registrations were from voters of color.
100,000+ votes missing from the 2018 Georgia Lieutenant Governor’s race. Because of faulty voting machines, voters–especially in communities of color –had their votes go unrecorded.
