Moral Monday Georgia garners national attention
The Moral Monday movement successfully brought the South into the national spotlight.
In the last week of the legislative session, we focused on social media and helped get the hashtag, #riseupGA, to trend on Twitter, which received well over 2 million impressions and generated over 1,000 calls demanding Medicaid Expansion to Governor Deal’s office.
Most importantly, we garnered national media attention by helping execute a well-coordinated wave of 39 arrests at the Georgia capitol on March 18, 2014.
