Report "The Georgia Way: How to Win Elections" Shows What Virginia Can Learn From Georgia
New report released after Georgia elections reflects on the success of organizers during Georgia's last elections with hopes of establishing guidelines for other southern states.
The producers of this report documented get out the vote efforts in Georgia to not only reflect on what has been accomplished, but to also create a framework for success that can be used in other southern battleground states across the country. The Georgia Way is part of a continually evolving effort to document the reflections and lessons of organizers working to get out the vote in southern states.
"Last week in Virginia, we saw what happens when political candidates and organizers fail to listen to voices of voters and respond to their needs," said Andrea Miller, Founding Board Member of the Center for Common Ground. "The Georgia Way" shows us what happens when we come together to build a collective relational organizing effort that uplifts voters' voices by establishing relationships with communities that go beyond only soliciting them for their vote."
The Center for Common Ground is a non-partisan voting rights organization led by people of color working to educate and empower under-represented voters in voter suppression states to engage in elections and advocate for their right to vote.
