NCLR on historic Georgia Senate election of Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff

SAN FRANCISCO (January 6, 2021) - Last night, Georgia voters made history by electing Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to represent the Southern state in the US Senate. Rev. Warnock's election is truly historic, as he will be the first Black senator to represent Georgia in Congress.

A statement from Imani Rupert-Gordon, the NCLR's executive director, follows:

"Yesterday, record numbers of Georgia voters turned out for one of the most important Senate elections in our nation's history," said Rupert-Gordon. "We congratulate Rev. Warnock and Mr. Ossoff on their historic victories, and we join millions of other Americans in urging them and the other members of the 117th Congress to address the urgent needs of those whose lives have been devastated by the pandemic and the glaring inequalities that are threatening our democracy. Now more than ever, we need leaders who will be honest about the problems we face and who are genuinely committed to solving them. Here at the NCLR, we are ready to do our part. We look forward to working with Senators-elect Warnock and Ossoff to advance legislation that protects the rights and well-being of all."

The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) is a national legal organization committed to advancing the human and civil rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education. Since its founding, the NCLR has maintained a longstanding commitment to racial and economic justice and the LGBTQ community's most vulnerable. More at www.nclrights.org.
