To provide a structured organization for galvanizing the liberal South Asian community.
The 2017 sixth district special congressional election in Georgia, where Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff challenged Republican candidate Karen Handel, as well as Leader Abrams’ 2018 candidacy for governor, galvanized the liberal South Asian community. South Asian American Democrats’ engagement during these two elections planted the seed for what would eventually become the Georgia chapter of They See Blue. We felt the need for a Democratic organization for South Asians to come together to provide a structure to our political activism. We came to know about They See Blue originally started in the Bay Area by a group of South Asian Democrats working to flip congressional seats in California in 2018. The Georgia chapter was born a year later, in August 2019, and now has over 200 members.
