The American Sustainable Business Council has been privileged to be a part of the national voter mobilization movement this year, leading up to the general election of 2020. As part of this ongoing effort, recognizing that elections occur more than every four years, ASBC will be leading an effort to get out the vote in Georgia for the run-off elections on January 5, 2021. Because neither Senate race produced a definitive majority, each race will go to a runoff election, which will determine which party holds the majority in the Senate for the next two years.
The implications for this election will affect the policy advocacy work that ASBC continues to do over the next few years. Such issues that will be affected include promoting income equality to strengthen the middle class, addressing climate change, upgrading public infrastructure, promoting an equitable tax system, supporting a diverse and inclusive society, fostering innovation in safer chemicals and sustainable products and packaging, supporting clean water and regenerative agriculture and encouraging new models of employee ownership
ASBC believes that a strong and inclusive economy cannot exist without a strong and inclusive democracy, and we support all businesses in Georgia that believe in doing responsible, sustainable work. If you work for a business operating in Georgia that is interested in having their work elevated and promoted, please reach out here.
We will be pursuing the following four actions until January 5:
