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!

We invite all to come support our candidates at this gala.
