Color Of Change PAC Releases Full Slate of Endorsements in Georgia Ahead of 2022 Midterms 

Through our commitment to elect progressive candidates who will support Black communities, Color Of Change PAC has endorsed nine candidates across Georgia, including Stacey Abrams for Governor, Raphael Warnock for Senate re-election

GEORGIA Color Of Change PAC, the political action committee of the nation’s largest online racial justice group, today announced its slate of endorsements in Georgia ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. Over the next few months, Color Of Change PAC will mobilize thousands of members and Black voters in Georgia to turn out the vote and elect progressive candidates with comprehensive and progressive policies and reforms in their platform that support Black communities.

In Georgia, Color Of Change PAC is endorsing the following candidates: Raphael Warnock for Senate; Stacey Abrams for Governor; Charlie Bailey for Lt. Governor; Bee Nguyen for Secretary of State; Sanford Bishop for CD-2; Hank Johnson for CD-4; Nikema Williams for CD-5; Lucy McBath for CD-7; and David Scott for CD-13. Color Of Change PAC is also endorsing candidates in California, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

“Black voters turned out in overwhelming numbers two years ago to deliver Biden the presidency and secure the Democratic majority in the Senate. That was not a one-off, but the result of years-long grassroots organizing and building Black political power in Georgia and across the country,” said Color Of Change PAC spokesperson Rashad Robinson. “With so much at stake this November, Color Of Change PAC is proud to endorse candidates who don’t just court Black votes on the campaign trail; they govern toward a more just world for Black communities in Georgia and nationwide. We will work hard to engage Black voters to support these important political leaders.”

Since 2016, Color Of Change PAC has mobilized hundreds of thousands of Black voters across the country, endorsing candidates who offer plans to help move Black people forward. In 2021, Rev. Warnock won in the special election runoff, part of the massive GOTV effort led by Black voters that helped secure two Senate seats and the Presidency for Democrats. Since his election, he has been a champion for voting rights and criminal justice reform, among other issues. Abrams previously ran for Georgia Governor in 2018, and also founded New Georgia Project and Fair Fight Action to protect voting rights and ensure all voters can access the ballot in Georgia. Abrams is running alongside Bailey, who ran for state Attorney General in 2018 and garnered nearly 50% of Georgians’ votes in an election plagued by voter suppression. Nguyen made history as the first Asian American Democratic woman to the Georgia General Assembly, and is now running to protect fair democracy as Secretary of State. Bishop, Johnson, Williams and Scott are also running for reelection. 

Bishop has represented the Second Congressional District of Georgia in the U.S. House since 1993, prioritizing issues like job creation, education, safe communities and affordable healthcare. Johnson has served in the House since 2007, voting for the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the George Floyd: Justice in Policing Act. Williams earlier this summer introduced the Right to Contraception Act, legislation that would codify the right to birth control under federal law. McBath, who flipped a House seat in 2018, first got involved in politics after losing her son to gun violence. Since getting elected she has been a champion of solutions to curb gun violence as well as in the fight for affordable healthcare. Scott prioritizes constituents’ needs in his district, sponsoring annual jobs fairs that have secured over 7,000 jobs in the community, bringing free healthcare exams to help reduce breast cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes, AIDS, and other issues, and hosting major home foreclosure prevention and mortgage assistance events.

Color Of Change PAC plans to support these candidates by building enthusiasm and mobilizing Black voters. One of the first-ever political organizing groups to figure out how to reach and engage Black voters and its members online, Color Of Change PAC has ramped up its digital tactics, and will host a variety of virtual events like Black Joy Socials, text and phone banking, virtual squad meetings and town halls. The organization also plans to send direct mail, launch GOTV email and SMS broadcasts, and deploy digital ads to reach and mobilize voters ahead of the midterm elections.
