Stacey Abrams reminded us of the fullest potential of our democracy, inspiring people to come out to the polls like we haven’t seen. If all Georgians who were eligible to cast a vote had been allowed to do so, @staceyabrams would be gov-elect tonight. #VotingWhileBlack ✊🏾 We have no doubt that too many voices were silenced in this election and that the results will be forever tainted by racist voter suppression tactics. Polls showed Stacey Abrams poised to become the nation’s first Black female governor. #TeamAbrams ✊🏾 But 53,000 voter registrations were put on hold in recent weeks for insignificant discrepancies. Seventy percent of those registrations belonged to Black people in a state where African Americans make up only a third of the population. #VoterSupression ✊🏾 Her opponent, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, refused to give up his office overseeing the election despite the clear conflict of interest. Aggressive voter purges and closures of polling places in Black neighborhoods also aimed to suppress Black votes. #BlackVotersMatter ✊🏾 If there is one lesson from this election, it’s that the importance of ensuring every American, regardless of race, zip code or voting history, has the right to vote cannot be understated. ✊🏾 Color Of Change PAC and its partners are not done fighting for the power of Black women or of the Black electorate to bend the arc of history toward justice. Until justice is real, we will continue organizing, training & raising the voices of Black communities across the country. #VotingWhileBlack

"Undaunted By The Fight" "In every hero's journey, the good guy is faced with a brutal and powerful opponent who is committed to an immoral philosophy that threatens the quality of life and progression of the world, or New York City. Whether it's the decepticons and transformers, or #BrianKemp and the peoples' #governor , #StaceyAbrams , it is imperative that the good guy never concedes, the good guy must win. The historical significance of Georgia in 2018 is plagued by its 50-year predecessor, 1968." Link in bio! And I'll read the essay on youtube!

While #canvassing for #staceyabrams #campaign in #georgia I heard many stories from early voters to people who discovered their polling place was changed upon receiving their correct location from us canvassers. Those in power heavily influence and dictate the conditions of our lives and how free freedom is. #SocialJustice infused #wellness acknowledges that #Nojustice #NoPeace is truly a saying that embodies how much of a discord is caused when injustices impedes on our right to an equitable society. It's impact in skin deep. Remember to breath deeply as the tension of injustice gathers in order to release it from your body. #counteveryvote #gapol #gagov #votingwhileblack #blackbloggers #votingrights #blackgirlmagic

Repost @shaunking by @media.repost : Look at this! This is based on hard data. In Georgia it’s even worse. This should be illegal. It’s voter suppression. Separate and unequal. From the brilliant @monachalabi #Vote #votingwhileblack #BLM #Blacklivesmatter #votingrights
Hundreds of community members organized to canvass on behalf of #staceyabrams . We only engaged those registered as #Democrats . When being dropped off by the van at 9am, my partner and I asked #propertyPatty the name of the street we were on. She told us she'll call the police on us for "soliciting" ...and that "nobody wants you here." ..im scared of dogs and aggressively unprovoked #whitewomen since they traditionally can commit violence and lie on #Blackpeople with total impunity. So i said deactivate, instead of de-escalate lol. #georgiaelections #briankemp #democrats #midterms2018 #whypipo #belike #whitepeople #whitepeoplebelike #bbqbecky #cornerstorecaroline #votingwhileblack #blackbloggers #ripemmetttill #cultureactivists #theculture #wearegeorgia #gagov #counteveryvote

Ballot chasing with @colorofchange for our fearless leader @staceyabrams ! I’ve text about 2,000 voters. 🇺🇸ALL votes deserve to be counted whether absentee, early votes, provisional ballots, overseas military ballots (which aren’t due until this Monday). 🍑Why does Kemp want to stop votes from being counted?? 🧐The integrity of our electoral process and democracy are being tested. We will keep fighting to make sure EVERY vote is counted AND accounted for!

We made history on Tuesday night in Nevada, flipping a Senate seat, electing Steve Sisolak to become the 1st Democratic Governor of NV in decades, and passing automatic voter registration! Also congrats to Aaron Ford for Attorney General and Kate Marshall for Lt. Governor! These wins would not have been possible without the hard work of our organizers, WinJustice partners and hundreds of local members! It all started with a Black Womens Brunch at the beginning of the year where we brought hundreds of Black women and shared a vision for building a community that engages Black voters to get the word out about the upcoming elections. We opened our Las Vegas community office which became a HQ for calling more than 14,500 voters, texting more than 40,159 voters and knocking on hundreds of doors. Congratulations, Nevada! . . . #VotingWhileBlack #TeamNevada #BlackWave #Elections #GOTV #stevesisolak #question5 #voterregistration #blackvotersmatter
