The Georgia J20 Coalition is a solidarity-building partnership of local community grassroots organizations and networks, faith-based organizations, and labor unions. The Georgia J20 is led by impacted communities, who know that the growing climate of hatred, bigotry, anti-black racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia has poisoned our political process and damaged our society’s moral compass. As our nation continues to move toward a more right-wing, corporatist, and exclusive form of leadership, we seek to lift up the concerns of our communities and our neighbors. We affirm the resilience and self-determination of our people who are the most directly impacted by forces of oppression. We will continue to center our voices and amplify our initiatives. We will organize, strategize, and build unity in our defense and will continue to follow the guidance and leadership of our communities. We seek to create a sanctuary space to support and defend our communities’ human rights from a system rooted in income inequality, white supremacy, racism, and misogyny. We realize that in unity and solidarity there is strength.
