In the midst of a global pandemic GeorgiaWAND has reached higher heights in our GOTV endeavors. We hired canvassers and consultants to assist with this program to help with our work to bring about change. Though there have been many challenging occurrences for most we have been able to reach for, and meet our goals in our We Count Program with the help of ProGeorgia and our Atlanta and Burke County staff. We have continued to work diligently and effectively to engage our community and surrounding communities on the importance of voting and why it is important to make sure your voice is heard.
