Blue Neighbors supports progressive candidates for Georgia's State Legislature.
Why the state legislature? Because national change starts in the states.
We don't have to wait until 2020 to fight back against Republicans' toxic policies. By taking back the states, progressives can change policies immediately.
Georgia's demographics mean it should be a tossup. Yet in 2016, Georgia Republicans ran unopposed in districts that Hillary Clinton carried. We need to rededicate ourselves to local politics. By fighting for states, we can turn grassroots passion into political power.
By electing Democrats in Georgia, you can protect:
- Voting rights
- Environmental rights
- LGBTQ rights
- Women's rights
Finally, the only way to combat Gerrymandering is by retaking the states. If we want to recapture the House of Representatives, we need to elect more progressive state legislators.
