The American labor movement delivered key victories up and down the ballot during the recent Labor 2020 campaign. Now, says Painters DC 51 Political Director Roxana Mejia, “our path forward runs through Georgia, where we are facing two crucial runoff elections that will decide the difference between a pro-worker majority and an anti-union majority in the U.S. Senate.” Mejia, who’s on the ground in Georgia canvassing for the runoff, helped kick off the Metro Washington Council’s virtual phonebank recently, where volunteers called Georgia union members encouraging them to vote for Rev. Raphael Warnick and Jon Osoff in what is expected to be a very close election that hinges of turnout.
