FORCE MULTIPLIER IS COMMITTED TO GETTING THE JOB DONE

We're also supporting three grassroots groups that are working
to register + educate + turn out + protect voters
for the Georgia Senate Runoffs:
This election is all about Turn Out!
"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.
Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year,
it is the struggle of a lifetime."
CONG. JOHN LEWIS
This election cycle has reminded many of us of the truth and wisdom in this quote from the late John Lewis. This struggle we entered as Force Multiplier almost four years ago is not the struggle of one or two election cycles. It is, indeed, the struggle of a lifetime.
We are full of hope + optimism.
The Biden/Harris ticket won by over 5 million votes and flipped 3-5 states. We raised funds directly for their campaign and supported grassroots organizing through the Movement Voter Fund in all 5 of these states.
Our voter protection work with Fair Fight and the DSCC Legal Fund also helped make sure there was a strong turnout in the face of a pandemic and aggressive voter suppression.
At the same time, we’re disappointed + sobered
by the down-ballot results + need to learn from them.
We won only one of our targeted Senate races outright. Plus, two of our candidates are in runoffs, keeping our hopes alive for control of the Senate.
We picked up one House seat, defended 11, and lost 10. But we preserved the majority.
And we fought all the right fights.
What we set-out to accomplish this year was difficult:
Hold the House + Flip the Senate + Win the White House
It will continue to be difficult.
But two out of three is a very good start!
We're proud of how we came together at a critical moment in our history
+ of the differences we all made together.
We’re proud of how our work helped Democrats run competitively in historically red districts. We have a strong footprint in most of the key competitive districts in all of the swing states. We believe that our investments in these races will pay dividends in future elections.
Our bench is deep, and our work has helped bend the arc a little more towards democracy.
In the coming weeks and months, we'll be inviting you to join us in a conversation about how we move forward towards the 2022 elections.
But our 2020 work is not done!
With the election of Biden and Harris, a Senate majority is still within reach.
Georgia's Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are both in runoffs on January 5, 2021. These are tough, high-profile races with no guarantees, but we must do everything we can to win.
Winning these races would enable VP Harris to be the tie breaking vote in an evenly divided Senate.
For four years we've worked hard to turn Washington Blue.
+ have accomplished much that we can all be proud of.
Together we raised over $6,000,000 for Democratic House + Senate candidates +
for groups that empower voters + protect the vote:
$2,500,000 to flip the Senate
$2,200,000 to flip the House in 2018 + build the majority in 2020
$1,300,000 to mobilize voters + protect the vote
Along the way we helped...
Flip 13 House seats in 2018
Support 9 Senate challengers in 2020
Support 21 House candidates in 2020
Support over 65 grassroots groups mobilize voters in WI, MI, PA, AZ, FL, NC + GA through the Movement Voter Project
Erect 20 Safe Haven Voter Protection tents in North Carolina
Raise 28 voter information billboards in rural southern states
Pay the fines + fees of 112 Florida returning citizens + restore their voting rights
Force Multiplier is an engaged community
that believes in the political power of people who work together.
We aren't going anywhere.
We will regroup, refocus + recommit.
