“Online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73% after several social media sites suspended President Trump & key allies last week”
Replying to @Esosa_Osa: An absolute and unequivocal indictment of the role social media platforms played in the rapid radicalization, mobilization,…
After a vast effort to challenge the eligibility of 360,000 Georgia voters, election officials rejected just a few dozen ballots, undermining suspicions of significant voting fraud.
.@TrueTheVote’s effort was one of the most bold-faced voting suppression attempts in GA history. This was an attempt to sow disinformation that voter fraud was going to happen. Well, it didn't happen. The lie of voter fraud is dangerous, destroying our country and it must stop.
Because the 2020 election may be over, but @fairfightaction continues to make sure that every voter can have their voice heard. Pa'lante!
Thanks @Lin_Manuel and @vegalteno for being allies in our fight to ensure access to the ballot box. You can now pre-order these collectible @HamiltonMusical Pin Mates at @HamiltonMusical @TeeRico_LinMan @EntEarth and Creative Goods to support our efforts ➡️
And now, in the first week of a new year, new jobless claims jumped 65% with more than 31,000 Georgians filing jobless claims, joining roughly half-million already out of work. Nearly 50,000 Georgians have appealed their rejected claims and are still waiting for a final ruling.
Last year, 3.9 million Georgians experienced loss of a job or reduced hours and more than 1/3 of unemployed Georgians were out of work for at least 27 weeks. 160,000 were at risk of eviction. Georgia apartment owners lost about $300M due to unpaid rent.
Georgia ranks in the top 10 for states whose economy was hit hardest by COVID. Accommodation, food services, transportation, and the arts sectors have each reported a double-digit decline in economic output. One in four small businesses open in 2019 are now closed.
Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. As GA legislative session convenes, we oppose any efforts to create additional barriers to voting. We oppose all attempts to eliminate no-excuse absentee voting and we oppose any measures to add voter ID laws for mail-in ballots. (1/4)
We cannot allow lies and unproven conspiracy theories from the 2020 election to be used as the rationale for election “reform” measures that are in reality an abuse of power meant to suppress Georgia voters and tip the scales in Republicans’ favor. (4/4)
When Republicans push baseless claims of voter fraud, push for bills and advocate for policies that make it harder to register to vote, to cast a ballot, and to have that ballot counted, they do even more damage to our already threatened democracy. (3/4)
Last year, Georgia Republicans passed a budget with a $950M cut to education AND $8.2M cut to the Dept of Public Health. It’s clear Republicans aren’t looking out for us: They cut essential services when we needed and relied on it most — during a pandemic. #sots #sots2021 #gapol
And we are proud to have funded GA-based orgs that mobilized a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational electorate. Georgians have made clear that we are a blue state and that voters - particularly Black voters and voters of color writ large - will not be silenced.
