Political Peach News is a biweekly email newsletter covering topics of concern in Georgia. Focusing mostly on governmental policy issues, the Peach lifts up the under reported, connects the dots, and highlights information from national sources that have implications in Georgia. Each issue has one opinion piece, a few “short takes” and suggestions of articles or podcasts of interest.
Certain issues in Georgia are not getting the media coverage they deserve, and important aspects of other issues that are not being discussed. The Peach amplifies voices from Georgia progressive groups and individuals. Krista writes about and interviews progressive activists and leaders who are not often quoted or even noticed by mainstream media. The Peach highlights significant statewide and local policy battles, including redistricting, the voter suppression, the proposed mine near the Okefenokee Swamp, and the Atlanta police training facility.
