Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Community Organizations Lead John Lewis ‘Good Trouble’ Marches and Votercades to the Polls in Georgia
Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Georgia shocked the country by voting for the Biden–Harris ticket in November. Now the state has the chance to flip the U.S. Senate to pro-worker control come January. Black and Brown voters in cities across Georgia joined a wide range of community organizations for John Lewis “Good Trouble” Marches and Votercades on Monday, as early voting began. The events in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Savannah and many other cities were festive celebrations of voting rights that led voters to the polls for early voting for the U.S. Senate runoffs on Jan. 5. The labor movement joined in and supported these efforts.
