State of Georgia secondary Archives: on Civil Rights


Matt Lieberman: Supports Stacey Abrams' plan for secure and fair elections

I am proud to be a member of the party that does all it can to promote voting, rather than a party here in Georgia that counts on suppression to win elections. I support the plan proposed by Stacey Abrams to ensure secure and fair elections. It is also why I support a Voting Rights Act for the 21st Century--because every American deserves to have a vote that counts and is heard.

Raphael Warnock: No such thing as equal rights for some; yes to Equality Act

As a civil rights advocate, he believes that there's no such thing "as equal rights for some."˙That belief has led him to advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community, to mourn in moments of tragedy and to celebrate in times of triumph, as after the Supreme Court's recognition of marriage equality. He will fight for and support the Equality Act to protect members of the LGBTQ+ community from housing, financial, and employment discrimination.˙
