Grassroots Groups in Our Priority States
Support Raphael Warnock
Through the Georgia Alliance for Progress!
As a tremendously effective complement to the Warnock Campaign, the Georgia Alliance for Progress (GAP) is the major convener, supporter, and coordinator of grassroots groups in GA. They are in a unique position to determine priorities for the most effective action in the runoff. 31st Street's experience with them in the 2021 runoff was especially positive. Our goal is $250,000.
They aim to knock on millions of doors, but will also conduct texting, mail, digital and radio, all aimed at key voters such as youth, black, Latin and AAPI voters.
Write Letters with Working America
to Help Reverend Warnock!
Working America recruited 124,000 new members in Georgia this year, and letters you send to Georgia members will yield key votes.

About 31st Street
Featuring Lisa Herrick and Jim Shelton
31st Street Strategy, in a Nutshell
Election "infrastructure" is crucial.
There are major issues with the standard approach used by many other organizations:
"Boom and Bust" cycle around the time of elections
Siloed campaigns; disjointed & uncoordinated efforts
Too much, and too late, dependence on TV
Failing to organize locally year-round & on-the-ground
We build infrastructure in states with key elections, especially US Senate races, via organizations that do year-round, on-the-ground organizing.
Support State Party year-round organizing following successful Wisconsin model e.g. PA, NC and MI
Grassroots groups in PA, NC and GA
We especially look for opportunities to reach working class and rural voters.
Working America's outreach to working class voters appears attractive, including for members to engage with voters in Pennsylvania.
We provide very selective candidate support where our dollars will be most effective.
Our strategy is flexible, nimble, detail-oriented,
evidence-based, and targeted.
By banding together, we can have
the greatest impact.
