#VoteWithJustice Voter Engagement Campaign
Georgia’s elections in 2016, 2017, and 2018 matter. In light of all the serious issues facing Georgians such as wages and jobs, access to healthcare, immigrant rights, education, civil rights, criminal justice and the many other issues our members and partners are working hard on, we know we need to build power to make change in Georgia. We are conducting voter registration and engagement efforts that help us grow our power and show it in the streets and at the polls.
We look forward to contributing energy that helps expand the conversation and efforts to increase Georgia's minimum wage. $5.15 is a joke and nobody can survive on $7.25. Our efforts will help unleash the power to win wage policies that reflect the needs of Georgia workers and families. We will continue to support coalition partners with efforts like the #Fightfor15 in both public and private sectors. With rising interest rates, housing costs, healthcare costs, etc. our efforts to raise wages for Georgia workers are imperative workers and families.'s base and strengthening our networks.
Expand #GAHealthAccess and Medicaid Campaign
2 million Georgians are still uninsured and almost half live in the metro Atlanta area. The state's failure to expand Medicaid in addition to the high numbers of Georgians still unable to afford health insurance is an undue burden on Georgia workers and families. Inaction by federal and state government is unacceptable. Atlanta Jobs with Justice is supporting efforts to expand Medicaid and exploring ways to help low-wage workers and working families access affordable health care.
Georgia #Not1More Deportations Campaign (Immigrant Rights)
We are coordinating with the Georgia #Not1More Coalition in our efforts to stop the profiling, detention, and deportation of immigrants from Georgia. As we speak, Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) is ramping up raids splitting up Georgia's immigrant families. ICE is coordinating with local law enforcement and building their presence in the local jails to expand their draconian practices in targeting immigrants. We are coordinating with immigrant communities to challenge these raids and prevent the collaboration with local law enforcement and ICE.
