We are passionate about a range of issues ranging from public schools, climate and Georgia’s natural environment, women’s rights, racial justice, campaign finance reform and more. What unites us is the desire to invest in political change in a new way to build the state we want to live in and a more reflective democracy. We believe all of us are only able to win big when we all work together.
