The slate of candidates for Georgia’s 2022 general elections is almost set, with a few notable exceptions. Crowded fields for key races have led to June runoffs with high stakes. But not everyone showed up to important debates.

Meanwhile, Republican runoff debates for congressional seats turned ugly as candidates made their pitches about why they should move on to the general election.

This week, we look at Georgia’s primary runoffs.

While Americans face challenges unlike any other time in our history, GPB and StoryCorps invite you to take part in One Small Step, a nationwide initiative to help bridge political divides and strengthen communities, one conversation at a time.

You'll meet someone new - a fellow resident with different views from you, who you might never talk to otherwise - for a simple, personal, 50-minute conversation. With participant permission, these conversations will be preserved for future generations at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. 

Do you worry about the growing divides in our country? If you’re wondering “What can I do to help?,” click here to learn more.
