Georgia Comes Alive Saturday, December 26
It’s NOT Boxing Day. You’re not in the U.K. The day after Christmas is the time for Georgia Comes Alive, a one-day virtual music festival to help get out the vote in the upcoming runoff elections by supporting local grassroots organizations Georgia Coalition for the People’s Agenda and CivicGeorgia. (Even if you ARE in the U.K., just for this year it’s GCA!) Coordinated by HeadCount, the event will be produced by the team behind Democracy Comes Alive, Quarantine Comes Alive, and Justice Comes Alive, which collectively raised close to $300,000 and garnered nearly two million views. GCA is also proud to partner with Participant, the producers of the new film John Lewis: Good Trouble.
Georgia Comes Alive takes place on Saturday, December 26, hosted by SiriusXM’s Ari Fink. Donate any amount to receive streaming links on the day of the show. We want to ensure that EVERY ELIGIBLE VOTER has the opportunity to cast votes in these important elections.
EVERY. ELIGIBLE. VOTER.
