#159CalltoAction: Vote on Feb. 13 in Georgia House District 175

Looking ahead to February, there is another special election for the House District 175 vacancy. It's a jungle election so progressives have a shot at flipping the district. The candidates are Treva Gear (D), John LaHood (R), Bruce Phelps (R), and Coy Reaves (R). If you live in District 175, check your voter registration and then go vote. #159CalltoAction #159GoVote

#159CalltoAction: Register Georgia Voters

If many groups working together can register 199,999 progressive voters and get them to the polls, we can flip state House and state Senate districts and elect a governor with progressive values. #159CalltoAction #159RegisterNewVoters

Call the Lt. governor, the speaker of the House, the chair of the House Committee and the chair of the Senate Committee. #159EndGerrymandering #159CalltoAction
