Campaign Update 4/25/2020

The Democratic Party of Georgia has updated their plan and extended deadlines for delegates and delegate electors to DNC convention. This is GREAT NEWS! Everybody should absolutely run and encourage others, especially if you are outside the Atlanta metro area! Every delegate counts in advancing an agenda for the 99%.

April 30: DEADLINE for District-Level Delegate Candidates to file their Statement of Intent FORMS by emailing them to DNC2020@georgiademocrat.org

If you’re running, please fill out this formmadsa.ga/delegate

If you cannot commit to the convention, you can still sign up to vote for our Delegates as an Elector by filling THIS GOOGLE FORM by 8pm on May 8.

Please run and sign up to be an electors! By having more candidates, Bernie’s campaign has more room to use “right of review” to deny bad-faith candidacies!

In solidarity,

Metro Atlanta DSA for Bernie Committee

Update

For months, the official Bernie Sanders campaign has been absent from Georgia. As the leading pro-Bernie organization in the state, Metro Atlanta DSA’s independent campaign has provided critical scaffolding to connect Bernie supporters and activists and bring them into the socialist community. Now that the Bernie campaign is soon arriving in Georgia, we believe it is best for members to begin directly engaging with the Bernie campaign. To that end, we have resolved to direct all Metro Atlanta DSA members and supporters to volunteer directly with the Bernie Sanders campaign for all electoral campaigning. We are totally ceasing #DSAForBernie canvassing after March 8th, but will continue to distribute T-Shirts and organize debate watch parties. Read our full campaign strategy memo here.
