This is what Democracy looks like.

This is Democracy looks like. Today I was proud to march with my family and friends at the Families Belong Together Rally in downtown Atlanta. Thousands of our neighbors took to the streets to protest the inhumane treatment of families seeking asylum in the United States and the unconscionable separation of children from their parents.  We marched in support of …

Resistance Works

For Christmas, I gave my mom a gold necklace with a small gold rectangle charm engraved with the word  RESIST. She put it on that day and hasn’t taken it off since. When asked, she says she will wear it every day until Donald Trump isn’t president anymore. This is a small, personal act of resistance. There are other ways to resist – …

The Humanitarian Crisis on our Borders.

The cruel and unnecessary separation of asylum-seeking families at our borders is an issue that transcends partisan politics – it’s a matter of human decency that calls us all to action. Public activism forced the Department of Homeland Security to draft an order to end this inhumane practice, but the President has yet to sign it. If you want to …

For some, their property has been significantly overvalued in the new assessment, and those folks …

They fall into what’s called the insurance gap, and that gap has an enormous impact on our economy, directly contributing to the closure of hospitals which leads to …

This is the last push! Go vote for Betsy!

Ok, polls close in about an hour and a half. Still plenty of time to get there and cast a vote for Betsy. While you’re doing it, text 5 (or 10!) friends who live in the district and get them to vote for Betsy! It’s down to the wire. All we’ve worked for comes down to how many people we …

Kate and Allie – The super volunteers!

This is Kate and Allie. They are too young to understand why I think their name combo is adorable. Kate and Allie are students at Paidea, and they’re also too young to vote. Yet, for two weeks, they’ve volunteered for my campaign every afternoon, canvassing all over the district. Today, they’re waving signs in front of the Cathedral of St. …
