Voting and Elections Matter
We have a special name for our campaign—Sweet Georgia Brown! We are already canvassing, calling, texting and digital storytelling to get out the vote in Georgia—AGAIN. Care to join us? For the 2020 Presidential Election, Black women showed up and showed out. The entire nation is discussing the phenomenon of Black women who did the work, especially in Detroit, Michigan, Las Vegas, Nevada, Phoenix and Maricopa County, Arizona, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Atlanta, Columbus and Albany, Georgia! Sisters, you DID. THAT!!! And while Donald Trump is still requesting recounts, we have moved on. While we continue to battle a global pandemic, we are out here, once again doing the work, engaged in the tight race for the Georgia Senate runoff! We invite you to hop on our Midnight Train to Georgia volunteer campaign and help us complete our mission with Operation #LetsGetItDone! Want to support the Sweet Georgia Brown Campaign? By all means, we welcome your financial support!

We always knew that our work would not end on Election Day and beyond the (re)counting of our votes. And the sacred tenets of democracy demand that we count every vote, especially when voter suppression tactics have been used to try to lessen the impact of Black voters and, especially, Black women or support divisive tactics to continue to disrupt Black families and communities with disingenuous appeals to our community members. Building and maintaining an authentic community is a labor of time and attention and Black women deserve it all.
The results of this entire election cycle, nationally, state-wide and regionally, will affect Black women across this country for many years to come. We are enacting our engagement plan that continues the conversation through the Georgia Senate runoff and the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2021. Black women will be present and accounted for, front and center, no longer relegated to the back, claiming our power to redistribute representation and resources! Can we get a witness?!
Following the Inauguration, we will host a national town hall entitled, “Sis, How You Doing?,” (yes, how you…) to check in with our members and begin imagining our organizational priorities for the following year(s). Our engagement work on-the-ground in Georgia and leading up to the inauguration, will then allow us to launch a new, digital campaign built on listening circles with Black women as we approach the next administration. So, let’s get started… and support! us along the way!
