The fight for equality and representation doesn’t begin and end at the White House. Municipal, state, and Congressional elections will determine who is writing the laws and fighting for the causes that most directly impact you and your community. That’s why organizations like Georgia Equality, the Human Rights Campaign, and Victory Fund release endorsements every year. The following local candidates have been determined by these organizations to be the best for fighting for Georgia’s LGBTQ community.
