While I watch #Debates2020, I'm going to share the ways the issues being discussed relate to my plans for Georgia. #gapol twitter.com/i/events/13186… "We're not learning to live with it. We're dying."

medium.com/@mokahforgeorg… In the past two years, Georgians have been victims of violent attacks because of their identities. Anthony Gooden Jr. and Marquez Tolbert were burnt with scalding water because they are gay. Maura Binkley was shot and killed in her yoga class for being a woman. #UniteAgainstHate
