Raphael Warnock

Raphael Warnock

Georgia

As Senator, Reverend Warnock will bring to Washington the concerns of struggling Georgia families who wonder why no one is looking out for them. He will focus on fighting for quality, affordable health care, for the dignity of working people who are paid too little as our government works more for Wall Street, and to make sure every voice is heard.

They See, Watch, and Hear Blue

Article in The Hindu on October 31, 2020

They See Blue mentioned in a Washington Post story 

Excerpt: 
 

K.S., who owns a software company, wrote a program that would allow him to extract all of the South Asian names from the state’s voter registration list. Initially, they focused on filtering for South Asian names in Chester County, where they live — and began calling and sending out postcards. In 2018, they worked to help elect Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.), flipping their home district from red to blue.
 

As word got out, the national organization They See Blue, which was founded in 2018 to get South Asians out to vote for progressive candidates, contacted them to ask if they wanted to collaborate on outreach. They then founded the organization’s Pennsylvania chapter, although K.S. emphasizes it’s still a grassroots effort with no formal structure. The most official programming they have, he said, is an annual picnic.

Ro Khanna Zoom All Hands Meeting (6).jpg

We apologize but due to unforeseen circumstances the All Hands Meeting featuring a Q&A with U.S. Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) has been postponed. We hope to reschedule the event as soon as possible and we will publicize it accordingly.

OUR COMPLETE GUIDE ON VOTER SUPPRESSION

GROWING A NATIONAL MOVEMENT

Texas is within Democratic reach in 2020!

TX2016-county-results.png

Though Texas has trended blue over the last several decades, the political tide in this state is beginning to turn as young, minority voters register to vote in droves.

 

Texas has had historically low voter turnout, so registering and mobilizing progressive South Asian voters en masse can have a profound effect on this state's political landscape, and can shift Texas blue in 2020.

 

Help join this historic effort!

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

California is where the flagship chapter of They See Blue was founded in 2018.
