Let's talk about what matters to Democrats.
Whether it's health care, equal rights, education, the climate crisis, common sense gun reform, veterans care, social justice, or voting rights, Democrats understand that there's no single issue that matters more than the rest, and we're tackling these issues and others like them every day.
But we're not just doing it for other Democrats. We're doing it for everyone.
We are STRONG.
We are courageous.
We are resilient.

Let's face it.
Republicans can't win unless we can't vote. And they're doing everything within their remaining power to prevent us from having our voices heard and our votes count.
To learn more about the nefarious ways Republicans are blocking the will of the people, please take some time to watch these documentaries and interview with Stacey Abrams that highlight the many examples of how they're suppressing votes of Democrats across the country.

Voter Protection, NOT Voter Suppression!
Georgia Republicans are running scared and doing all they can to suppress the will of the voters in our state. We must ensure that we ALL have ample access to polls and absentee ballots in 2022 and beyond. The FCDP Voter Protection Task Force is working hard for all of us to ensure our vote will be counted and our voices heard.
