Register now: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7OWDnKtiSyKQKs9sr1KBwQ  
How can progressive grassroots organizers turn red states to blue, or at least to purple? Organizers across the country in red states and swing states, especially those in which the demographics are changing, are wondering which path they should take in their own states now and over the next 10 years, so we will focus on both short-term solutions and gaining momentum for the long term.
 Georgia’s 16 electoral votes for President Biden, and the Senate seat victories for Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock, were the result of many years of sustained investment and organizing. Far outside D.C., grassroots groups have been reshaping the infrastructure of progressive organizing for years, in different ways that build bridges across political geography. A panel of expert Georgia organizers will discuss solutions and best practices and take your questions. We will tape the session and provide a few suggested reading materials.
