Georgia Equality Announces Endorsements for 2020 General Election

The Board of Directors of Georgia Equality, the state’s largest political advocacy organization for LGBTQ Georgians and our allies, has announced its endorsements in the upcoming 2020 General Election.

The Georgia Equality Board of Directors issue an endorsement for a candidate who they feel is best placed to advance an LGBTQ policy agenda. The lack of an endorsement should not necessarily be viewed as a negative reflection of a particular candidate’s views on LGBTQ issues in general.

“As we draw near to the general election, it is more important than ever that we support candidates and incumbents that will bring expertise, clarity, and fairness to our State Capitol. Each candidate we have endorsed believes in equality and safety for all LGBTQ Georgians, and if elected will work diligently to ensure that these beliefs are reflected in our state law,” said Jeff Graham, executive director of Georgia Equality.
