Our Mission: flipping the Georgia State House.
If we fail, Republicans will have complete control over redistricting in 2021, and, emboldened by the recent Supreme Court decision, will gerrymander their way into power for the next decade. Blue Neighbors exists to build partnerships between Democrats in solidly blue states and those in the battlegrounds where Democrats have the talent and passion to compete, but have been lacking the resources of Republicans.
These investments will strengthen the foundation of the Democratic cause, give us power in crafting legislation, a voice in redistricting, and help flip states in presidential elections.
Without Georgia: the Republicans have no path to the presidency.
Stacey Abrams’ historic run for Governor of Georgia validated our belief that Georgia is the most flippable red state in the country, and one of the most important battlegrounds in the nation. Without Georgia, the Republicans have no path to the presidency. As the tides have begun to turn, Republicans have embraced their most radical and reactionary agenda yet.
Georgia Democrats flipped 14 seats in the State House in 2018, despite rampant instances of voter suppression, enough to ensure that when Republicans introduced one of the most regressive and oppressive anti-choice bills in the nation, it was only able to pass by one vote.
We supported 15 candidates in the 2018 elections, 12 of whom won their races, shifting power considerably to the left in the Georgia legislature. With your help, we can support even more candidates and take back the Georgia General Assembly in 2020.
