Georgia Dems to help ‘resist’ President Trump

Aaron Gould Sheinin, AJC

As Donald Trump prepares to take the oath of office as president, Georgia Democrats want to help fight him.

The Georgia House Democratic Caucus on Friday launched "Georgia Resists," described as “an online political action and organizing tool” to help mobilize Democrats around the state.

“In the coming year, we will face debates about who we want to be as a state: one that embraces our diversity, celebrates our progress and protects the vulnerable among us, or one that will shy away from our values and reverse course out of fear or spite,” House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, D-Atlanta, said in a statement. The site will teach Georgians how to respond to Republican-led efforts to change health care law, how to engage at political events and help grow the party.
