Economy

We are committed to making Georgia’s economy work for everyone. That means raising the minimum wage, providing paid family leave, and making sure that women can’t be paid less than men for doing the same job. There’s no reason that our state can’t both be the best place in the nation to do business and the best place to raise a family.

Education

After the failure of the so-called “Opportunity School District” initiative, it’s clear that parents and teachers want to maintain local control of their schools. However, we can’t ignore the fact that dozens of our schools are in need of academic improvement.
We believe the most effective solution is to implement our Community Schools plan, which would create a state level grant program to fund wraparound social services programs in schools such as additional education, health and nutrition, adult education, and other community involvement programs. Schools should be a place of learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Equality

Georgia is only one of five states in the nation with no public accommodations protections on the books. It’s long past time that we affirm that we will not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, and gender identity.
Our state is also in dire need of election reforms. Gerrymandering is more prevalent than ever and, for minorities and low-income Georgians, it’s getting harder to vote, not easier. The right to vote is the cornerstone of our democracy, and access to the ballot box should not be determined by the color of your skin, the area you live in, or how wealthy you are.

Environment

For the third year in a row, we set a record for the hottest year ever on Earth. Global warming is a real threat, and there are steps we can take to combat that threat. Encouraging greater investment in renewable energy and incentivizing the use of public transit.
