Thank you to BVM Fund Capacity building institute!
LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright, co-founders of Black Voters Matter Fund, jointly issued the following statement in response to reports of overwhelming and unprecedented support for presidential candidate Joe Biden in Georgia:
Last night, Georgia turned blue, ya’ll. It’s been 28 years since that last happened when Georgia narrowly voted for Bill Clinton over George H.W. Bush, but there it is.
A new South is rising, and Georgia is the beacon.
The message is clear: Don’t count us out. We have more work to do in the South for sure, but the margins are narrowing, the tide is turning, the motivation for better, progressive leadership is growing.
Georgia is at the epicenter of this country right now and we are claiming victory. We are standing on the shoulders of Dr. Martin Luther King, Congressman John Lewis, Joseph E. Lowery, Maynard Jackson, Andrew Young, Coretta Scott King, Ella Josephine Baker, Ruby Parks Blackburn, and more.
Count every vote.
Can’t stop, won’t stop!
