ATLANTA – The Democratic Party of Georgia has taken emergency measures designed to protect Georgians health and combat the spread of COVID-19. These measures include:
Democratic Party of Georgia Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement:
“The Democratic Party of Georgia is putting public health and safety first, and we are doing everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect Georgians. We have postponed all party events for the foreseeable future, and are transitioning our vital organizing and voter protection work to be done remotely in a safe manner to lower the risk of transmission.
We know how important it is to keep up our work to protect the vote and reach out to voters in every corner of our state, and we are adapting our work to be done in a safe way. All campaigns, candidates, and local parties should join us in this effort, and transition organizing work to be done remotely for the time being.
These are hard decisions to make, but we are dealing with unprecedented challenges that we will rise to meet together. Georgia Democrats will continue to do our part to keep Georgians safe, and continue to follow the guidance of public health officials as this crisis continues.”
