The State of Democracy in Georgia

For environmental voters, safeguarding our democracy and increasing civic engagement is not an optional strategy: without it, we cannot and will not succeed in our fight to save our air, water, and people. We must advance and protect our democracy so that it is representative of and responsive to all the people that call this country home. For us, this means having transparent and accessible elections, and ensuring that elected leaders represent all of the people that live in their district, no matter where they come from, how much money they have, or the color of their skin. We must work to prevent unchecked corporate dollars from drowning out the voices of Georgians in our political process. In the democracy we seek, everyone has access to and meaningful involvement in their government and the decision-making about their lives and communities.
