This election is about rebuking white nationalism.
It’s about whether or not we have to worry that we’re all just one medical emergency away from losing our homes or declaring bankruptcy.
This election is about whether we, as a society, value the lives of our students, teachers and neighbors over the profits of the gun lobby.
Will we elect leaders who will fight back when our drinking water is dirty, our air is toxic and our coastlines are disappearing?
Or will we elect politicians who will turn a blind eye to (or deny altogether) our environmental crises — all so they can continue to pad their pockets with cash from billionaires and corporate lobbyists?
We will go with the politician who has made a career out of attacking voting rights, or choose the leader who has fought to bring more Georgians into the political conversation?
You’ve already decided. Now go vote.
There’s no way around it: About half of Georgia voters are going to cast their ballots for candidates who want to defund public education, strip away healthcare access for people with pre-existing conditions, will refuse to do anything about gun violence and will continue to attack the rights of LGBTQ Georgians, Black Georgians, women, immigrants and any other group of people that they don’t consider a part of “their America.”
But about half of Georgia voters are going to vote for the future envisioned by true leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr.: One in which fairness, freedom and opportunity for ALL reign supreme.
We’re voting for a future in which young Georgians — regardless of their background — can get a quality education, see a doctor when they need to and work towards their dreams in a society that values people and our planet more than corporate profits.
The race in Georgia is close. Dangerously close. Like 50/50 close.
The future that we choose for our state and our country all comes down to YOU.
>>>Find your polling place and go vote.
This election is for the heart, the soul and mind of Georgia and America. We have to make our minds up.
Are we a society which embraces hate and divisiveness?
Are we a country in which fascist ideals — like disdain for the media and vile nationalism — are celebrated, even by those in highest office?
Or are we going to stand, united around love and respect for our neighbors — all of our neighbors?
Will we continue building a society that works for everyone?
Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that “unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
Today is your chance to prove him right. So, what’s it going to be? Who will have the final word in this election?
Are you ready to go vote like our future depends on it?
