House District Committee Elections

House District Committee Elections

Elections for postseat holders and House District chairs were held this past Thursday, July 21, 2022. When redistricting occurred last year, the postseat holders and chairs for some House District committees were suddenly residing in a different House District, while other House Districts were entirely replaced by a new House District. Due to this confusion, the elections for postseat holders and House District chairs were moved up to July 2022 as opposed to January 2023. Here are the results of those elections.

Primary Election Results

Primary Election Results

We finally have our Democratic ticket! Our candidates are:

This fall we will also have new members of the DeKalb delegation. Representative-Elect Omari Crawford (House District 84) has no Republican opponent. Now, we have to help carry State Representatives Shea Roberts (HD 52), Long Tran (HD 80), Karen Lupton (HD 83), Imani Barnes (HD 86), and Saira Draper (HD 90) to victory.

Let’s make history this November!

A Post-Roe America

A Post-Roe America

We are officially in post-Roe America. But here in Georgia, it’s about to get worse. The Georgia legislature passed a law in 2019 called the LIFE Act that would make it illegal to have an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, except in cases of rape, incest, medically unviable pregnancies, and natural miscarriage. That law was not constitutional at the time it was passed and therefore, it did not go into effect, but now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, the law will go into effect. Apparently, it is “constitutional” now. At the moment, the law is not yet being enforced, because it is held up in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, but the expectation is that this court will allow it to become enforceable law as soon as the court makes its decision, which could be any day now.  
 
Although it may seem counterintuitive, “six weeks pregnant” actually means about four weeks after conception. So the law is even worse than it sounds. In reality, it is a heartbeat law. If the doctor can hear a heartbeat, which begins at about four weeks after conception, then it is illegal to get an abortion, except for the exceptions listed above. And those exceptions might go away: Republican state legislators are already in the process of proposing even more restrictive anti-abortion laws. If you value your rights to bodily autonomy, whether or not you personally can be pregnant, then vote for Democrats this fall and urge your friends and family to as well! And vote Democrat down the entire ballot! Now that the Supreme Court has desecrated the official interpretation of the constitution, many of our rights and freedoms will be in the hands of state legislators to decide. If we turned Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats blue, then we can turn the Georgia legislature blue, too!
