Share this information on any social media that you use to help get the word out -- and if you personally know people living in Alabama, speak to them directly. Republican Roy Moore, who has many problematic beliefs, has been accused of pursuing relationship with underage girls while he was in his 30s. As of this writing, he's being pressured to abandon his run. Regardless of whether he does or not, you can donate to his Democratic rival, Doug Jones, here.
