- After Biden barely squeaked out a victory in Georgia while Democrats nationwide failed to produce a “blue wave,” it soon became clear the possibility of flipping the Senate would fall to Georgians.
- “We’re tired, we’re scrappy, this is kind of our first rodeo this year,” Jade Brooks of SONG Power told In These Times. “But we knew there were going to be so many national groups coming into Georgia, so much money falling from the sky, what could we really do? We brought it to our members in Georgia, and through a series of conversations and calls, our members felt very strongly that we couldn’t sit the fight out.”
- “We really lean into the fact that facts don’t change people’s minds, emotions and stories and values do,” Danny Timpona of People’s Action explained. “It’s so rare for people to actually feel listened to, and to think that this person on the end of the line actually cares. Our volunteers really take a lot of pride in creating that space and knowing how important this is not just for this election, but for everything we’re navigating during the pandemic.”
