ATLANTA, GA – Immigrant powerhouse CASA in Action will host Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, at a canvass kickoff to turn out the vote for Raphael Warnock and expand the Democratic majority in the Senate just a few days before the December 6 run-off election.
“Two years ago, we flipped Georgia blue by bringing together a diverse coalition of voters that included Black voters, Brown voters, Latino voters, AAPI voters, working class voters, and all immigrant voters. That same coalition is what will send Reverend Raphael Warnock back to the Senate and ensure Democrats can continue fighting for working people in Georgia and across the country,” said Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal. “Senator Warnock is a great ally who will keep working to deliver real change for Georgians, not the rich and corporations. I am thrilled to head down to Atlanta to turn out the vote on his behalf.”
“The Georgia runoff elections are the only opportunity for us to keep a razor thin majority in the Senate,” said Luis Zaldivar, CASA in Action’s Georgia Director. “Healthcare, housing, and citizenship are on the ballot on Tuesday, and voters, especially Black and brown voters, need to see champions like Rep. Jayapal and Senator Warnock fighting for working families in Congress.”
