In this special Georgia Legislative Black Caucus newsletter we address the importance of voter participation during the 2020 election.
SEPTEMBER 28, 2020
WORKING TO REPRESENT ALL OF GEORGIA
Remaining Vigilant and Focused
We are now 35 days from the November 3 general election. Please make sure to register prior to the October 5 deadline. If you intend on voting absentee, there is a link below to submit your request. It is critical we exercise our civic duty and ensure our voices are heard at the polls.
This special newsletter provides our members, constituents, and other stakeholders important information on voting in Georgia. It is critical all voters understand why they should vote, how they can vote, and what to do if their rights are denied.
In little more than a month you have the chance to determine who will represent you at the federal, state, and local levels. Now is not the time for silence, but for action.
As Chair of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus (GLBC), I am proud to represent the 65 members who serve in the Georgia General Assembly. Established in 1975, the GLBC has sought to protect the general welfare of African Americans, other people of color, and disadvantaged citizens of Georgia in matters of health and welfare, education, social and criminal justice, employment, and economic empowerment.
For more information about our organization, the members, legislative priorities, and other resources, I ask that you visit our website. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Yours in Service,
State Representative Dr. Karen Bennett (HD-94)
