One group that did not forego direct voter contact in key states in parliamentary elections was UNITE HERE. The hotel workers union knocked on 3 million doors, including 20,000 a day in Arizona’s critical Maricopa County. Georgia is now in full swing, with a big start on Wednesday.
The goal for the 500-strong union team is 1 million doors by the January 5th runoff. At the kick-off event, UNITE HERE members gave reasons for their commitment to the race: “Like many Black & Brown people, I have high blood pressure and need medication to keep it under control, “said Wanda Brown of UNITE HERE Local 23.” On December 1, I was told I was eligible for a refill, I need her so I’m going to make the sacrifice as my mother would say, ‘Rob Peter to pay Paul’ “.”
“We have the ability to build the Georgia we want … and the America we want,” New Georgia Project leader Nse Ufot told the advertiser.
