A committed community leader
Rev. Raphael Warnock grew up in public housing in Savannah as the son of a veteran and small business owner. With the help of Pell Grants and low-interest loans, Warnock was able to graduate from Morehouse College, earn a Ph.D, and become an ordained minister. Rev. Warnock was later chosen as the youngest-ever senior pastor at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he continues to use the same pulpit Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once did. There, Warnock leads his community in service, faith, and action on issues ranging from voting rights to accessing affordable health care.
A strong activist of voting rights and democracy reform
Rev. Warnock has been an advocate of expanding access to the ballot and democracy reform throughout his career. Warnock served as Chair of the New Georgia Project, an organization founded by Stacey Abrams to register people of color to vote. Warnock’s campaign is rejecting corporate PAC money, proving that he will fight for Georgians everyday in Congress––not big corporations or special interests.
A highly competitive Senate seat
The Georgia Senate special election is set to be one the most competitive races of the 2020 cycle. Warnock is running against Senator Kelly Loeffler, who just recently bought one of Georgia’s Senate seats after promising to spend $20 million of her own fortune on her reelection bid.
