Why are we supporting Zan Fort?

Zan is a lifelong Atlanta resident with a long family history of union membership and ties to the Democratic Socialists of America. Zan’s platform includes progressive policies such as:

  • A $15 minimum wage
  • Medicare for All (pushing to expand Medicaid in GA and protecting the ACA until we can pass Medicare for All federally)
  • An extended moratorium on COVID-19 evictions
  • Banning violent police practices such as chokeholds, no-knock warrants, and ending qualified immunity.
