MoveOn members for Doug Jones in Alabama

In September, MoveOn members in Alabama voted overwhelmingly to endorse Doug Jones for the U.S. Senate. On December 12, Alabama can elect a civil rights champion and show that standing up for working families is a winner in every corner of the country.

Check out some of the stories below from volunteers on the ground throughout the state. Even if you’re not in Alabama, you can support Doug Jones for Senate and help defeat Roy Moore.

This past weekend, MoveOn members joined hundreds of volunteers all across the state of Alabama in their efforts to support Doug Jones for Senate in the special election. Here is a quick run down of what they accomplished, along with some highlights from the weekend.

Last week, 6 volunteer leaders sent texts to MoveOn members in their area asking them to join them at Doug Jones volunteer shifts. Volunteer leaders sent over 4000 texts to MoveOn members in Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham and Baldwin county, which resulted in over 80 members signing up to volunteer.

      • In Tuscaloosa, Frannie said that Saturday 10am (the shift she recruited for) was the best attended shift of the weekend’s three [shifts]. Most of our lists were walked then… one person who I’d never seen before even thanked me for my text!”

      • In Tuscaloosa, Judy recruited MoveOn members to join her this past Saturday at 10 am and she said she met some amazing people out on the doors.

        • Lauren in Tuscaloosa said “It was great. We had a good turn out both Saturday and Sunday canvassing!” and told us that she would be back again this upcoming weekend.
        • David in Birmingham thanked us for the text and said that he had a “Wonderful experience” canvassing this past weekend.
        • Cooper, a text leader in Huntsville said that, “Anyone who’s responded that they couldn’t come for the specific event but are interested in helping I’ve sent info about field office hours, encouraging them to come whenever they’re available. I’m sure the results we’re getting are more than worth the effort.”
        • Niamh Fields in Birmingham shared this amazing story from her canvass this past weekend. “Had a super productive and FUN time canvassing all afternoon for #dougjonesforsenate in McCalla! Met so many lovely people, had numerous thoughtful discussions, and feel confident the ground troops are making a difference. So many volunteers stepping up to get out the vote! Met this awesome woman on our travels, and her daughter turns 18 on December 12th and is registered to vote! What an exciting birthday to have the opportunity to make a positive difference in history!”
