2018 True Blue Gala

Come one, come call to our

2018 True Blue Gala!

Formerly known as the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, this is the biggest event for Democrats in Columbus before the election! This is a fundraiser for our committee so that we can support our candidates who are running for statewide office, Congress and General Assembly.

Special Guest Speaker: Stacey Abrams!

Leader Abrams is our 2018 nominee for Governor, the first woman and first African-American to be nominated for governor by a major party in Georgia, and the first African-American woman ever nominated for governor by a major party. In 2002, at 29 years old, she served as the Deputy City Attorney for Atlanta. From 2002 to 2017, she served as a member of the Georgia House of Representatives and served as House Minority Leader from 2011-2017. She is running as a strong Georgia Progressive, and is leading a diverse, progressive Democratic ticket to win the Gold Dome in November!

2018 Jack T. Brinkley Sr. Service Awards

We will be awarding our Brinkley Awards to former MCDC chair Judy Brouillette, Chief Assistant District Attorney Alonza Whitaker and city councillor Mimi Woodson. For past speakers and awardees, check out our main page.
