PaveItBlue, a Facebook community that’s launched over a thousand voices, was featured in a CBS Evening News story recently. The group formed in the 6th district in Cobb County. Founder, Jen Cox created the community after she and her daughter participated in the Women’s March in Atlanta.
“Now, just over a month later, we’re at almost 2,000. And again, all local women,” Cox told CBS News.
Liberal women in the red zones of north Atlanta, especially in the 6th district, are realizing that they don’t need to hide anymore.
“I was afraid that it would affect even perhaps my kids’ relationships with their friends,” Cox told CBS. “We were all making a lot of assumptions that terrible things would happen if we came out as liberals.”
In the interview, Cox discusses how many liberal women are getting involved in the political process for the first time. Invigorated by Trump’s anti-women agenda (among other things), they are focused on turning both the 6th district and the state blue. The first steps are centralizing for Jon Ossoff and Christine Triebsch‘s campaigns. Ossoff is running for the congressional seat Tom Price vacated, who accepted an appointment to Trump’s administration in the 6th district. Triebsch is running for Georgia State Senate in district 32.
