Peace Voter Action Center

Resources for peace activists committed to a responsible foreign policy

Phone Bank for the Candidates

You can help pro-peace candidates on their path to Congress! Indicate your commitment to peace by adding “Peace Action” onto your name on Mobilize Zoom as you dial. These races are some of the closest in the country, and every vote will count. We have to help ensure we get the votes out for our candidates!

Particularly with redistricting this year, many voters don’t know where to vote now. Many others don’t know how to do so and get their vote counted due to new voter suppression laws. The best ways to help these campaigns is through voter outreach and education. Let’s help them!

And don’t worry if you’re from out of town. If the script ever says anything like “I’m a district voter” just switch it to something like “I believe in…” or “I’m volunteering for…”

SENATE

Raphael Warnock (GA)

Raphael Warnock needs our help to hold onto his Georgia Senate seat. Sign up to make calls for him and get the vote out!

When? Most days until the Dec. 6th runoff.

Pro-peace ally Reverend Raphael Warnock facing a razor-thin race to hold onto his Senate seat. Before joining the Senate, Raphael was the senior pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, the former pulpit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Unsurprisingly, he views the perils of militarism in many of the same ways as Dr. King, saying, “Dr. King talked about war and some are beating the drums of war even tonight. Pray for our nation, but as you think about the geopolitical situation, let us resist the demons of militarism that disturb our domestic situation.” We know where Warnock stands on our issues. Meanwhile, Trump-backed challenger Herschel Walker wants to invest even more into the military and stop all “efforts to negotiate with our enemies” — a dangerous combination sure to endanger communities at home and abroad. Walker’s lies and blind alignment with the MAGA right made him an unqualified and dangerous candidate long before revelations and scandals started racking up. Yet this runoff will be tight, so we need to jump on the phones to help our ally Warnock today! Find out more: www.warnockforgeorgia.com/about

At Peace Action, we don’t just work to influence Congress. We also work to shape it.

Only by demonstrating the power of the peace constituency can we expect members of Congress to support pro-peace policies. That’s why Peace Action is committed to helping get pro-peace candidates into office.

Every election cycle, Peace Action makes candidate endorsements, raises campaign money for our candidates, conducts candidate briefings of foreign policy issues and donates skilled organizers to campaigns that we know will represent the peace movement well in Congress. Through this work, we’ve built invaluable relationships with Senators and Representatives, helping to shape many pro-peace candidates into pro-peace leaders on Capitol Hill. Help fund our Peace Voter work.

If you’d like to donate to a specific candidate, you can do so here. Donating through us sends the campaign a message that you’re donating for peace!

Can we do anything electorally as a 501(c)(3)?

Yes, but in a restricted, nonpartisan way. Alliance for Justice has some good resources on 501 (c)(3) eligible electoral work. A few more common actions are below (full list here) and you can find more information at https://bolderadvocacy.org/.

  • Conduct nonpartisan get-out-the-vote and voter registration drives
  • Sponsor candidate debates
  • Conduct voter protection activities
  • Canvass the public on issues

Federal tax law absolutely prohibits 501(c)(3)s from supporting or opposing candidates for public office. 501(c)(3)s cannot endorse candidates or make independent expenditures suggesting who is the “better” candidate without jeopardizing their tax-exempt status.
