We don’t need to wait until 2018 to make a difference in Congress. Next month, we have the opportunity to elect Jon Ossoff, a Georgia Democrat and corruption-fighting journalist who has the chance to flip a red district to blue.
Though Republicans have controlled this diverse and growing Atlanta suburb for decades, Ossoff currently leads in the polls. We know a win here sends a message to Trump that we’ve had enough with his hateful agenda—and it’s going to take all of us to make it happen.
The Republican Congress is making it clear that we can’t afford to turn back the clock on the hard-won victories of the last decades. The rights of women, immigrants, and working families are at stake – and that’s why it’s critical that we elect leaders who are willing to fight for our values in Congress.
