Atlanta, Ga. — Today, investigative journalist and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Jon Ossoff released his latest ad, “The Talk,” featuring Lawanda G., a mother from Douglasville. In the ad, Lawanda speaks about the conversations she, like so many parents, has had with her son about the risk to his life for being Black in America and Jon Ossoff’s plan to fight for justice and equal protection under the law in the U.S. Senate.
Lawanda recounts the discussions and stresses that “the most important thing that we can do is to get out and vote.”
Lawanda then speaks to Ossoff’s plan to fight for a new Civil Rights Act to put an end to police brutality and racial profiling. Lawanda emphasizes the need to elect Jon Ossoff to the Senate, saying, “He really cares about people.”
She closes the ad by underscoring the potential for change with Ossoff in the Senate and early voting starting on December 14.

“As a mom, I have to talk to my son about the way he carries himself, the way he talks, the way he walks, making sure that he doesn’t put his hood on his head.
“Someone may see him as a threat, just because of the color of his skin.
“They don’t know that he’s a straight-A and B student. They don’t know how he loves to help his little sister.
“Instead of college talk, we’re talking about coming home alive.
“The most important thing that we can do is to get out and vote.
“Jon Ossoff is going to fight for a new Civil Rights Act to stop police brutality and racial profiling.
“We need Jon Ossoff in the Senate.
“When I say he’s not a typical candidate, he’s not. He really cares about people.
“Right now, we have the power to start making change.
