With just weeks until the Nov. 6 election, Georgia Equality has set its sights on one state Senate race and four House races as it works with other organizations to block Republicans from winning a constitutional majority — meaning the party will be able to pass whatever laws it wants under the Gold Dome.
LGBT Georgians will suffer if the GOP solidifies total control of the state legislature, Cathy Woolard, lobbyist for Georgia Equality, explained at a Sept. 24 briefing at the Phillip Rush Center.
“I can’t overstate how important it is that this [constitutional majority] not happen this time around, or the next time around. We need to not be moving toward this, we need to be moving away from this. This is too close to the edge,” Woolard said.
