Because It's Time Washington Worked for Us For A Change

Michelle NUNN
for U.S. Senate

"For 25 years, I've seen firsthand what's possible when we look beyond politics and work together to solve problems."

Leading the World's Largest Organization Dedicated to Volunteer Service
For 25 years, volunteer service on behalf of others has been the cornerstone of Michelle Nunn's life.

Starting at age 22 with a salary of $4,000 a year, she built a tiny organization of Georgia volunteers from the ground up, eventually merging with President George H.W. Bush's Points of Light Foundation. Since 2007, Michelle has been the CEO of Points of Light - the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service - with a $30 million b udget and more than 4 million  volunteers.

Hurricane recoveries. Housing for returning veterans. Helping seniors stay healthy in their own homes. Empowering individuals, not government, to improve their own lives and communities.

Michelle Nunn's entire career reflects the simple truth that every Georgian knows. The best solutions don't come from Washington. They come from us.

Educating Our Children
Our country must have an educational system that engages children in the love of learning and sets themon a pathway to become productive citizens ready to compete in a global economy.

That should start early with expanded access to pre-school and high standards for our elementary and secondary students while ensuring we give them the support they need to succeed.

That includes recruiting good teachers, keeping class sizes small, empowering strong principals, addressing issues such as chronic absenteeism and encouraging parents to become more engaged in their child's education.

Creating Jobs and Opportunity

Job creation and economic growth are Michelle's top priorities. We need government
policies that promote a strong middle class, build self­ sufficiency for low-income
families, and ensure that every Georgian has a chance to become a productive and engaged citizen.

We must expand public-private partnerships to provide our young people with training, experiential learning and apprenticeships that better equip them to meet the needs of employers in Georgia.

People should get paid for the work they do - not who they are. Michelle supports the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure women get paid the same as men for the same work, as well as an increase in the minimum wage to help hardworking folks earn a decent living.

Michelle Nunn has devoted her life to empowering people to change their lives and their communities - mobilizing millions of volunteers to educate children, build homes, serve veterans and care for our seniors.

Now she's running for United States Senate because it's time Washington worked for us for a change.

She's proud to be supported by

Congressman John Lewis
Congressman Sanford Bishop
House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed
Former Governor Roy Barnes

Michelle Nunn is a ninth-generation Georgian who has spent her life working to empower individuals and communities to enact change.

The daughter of Sam and Colleen Nunn, Michelle was born in 1966 in Macon near her grandparents' farm in Perry, Georgia.
Engage­ment in public service has been a hallmark of Michelle's family, from her grandfather serving as Perry's mayor to her father's dis­tinguished tenure in the United States Senate.

Seeing a need in Atlanta for a vehicle to engage young peo­ple in service to solve problems in their own communities, Michelle and a group of friends created Hands On Atlanta, with Michelle as its first Executive Director. Over the next decade, Michelle grew volunteerism across Georgia, and eventually throughout the country, through Hands On Network, a national outreach of volunteer-service organizations.

In 2007, Hands On Network merged with the Points of Light Foun­dation, President George H.W. Bush's organization and legacy. Michelle became CEO and President of Points of Light, now the largest organization in the country devoted to volunteer ser­vice, with 250 affiliates and partnerships with thousands of non­profits and corporations. Last year alone, they were responsible for 260,000 projects, inspiring over four million people to volun­teer. That service delivered 30 million hours of labor, valued at $635 million.

Michelle lives in Georgia with her husband, Ron, and two children, Vinson and Elizabeth.

Michelle has earned a reputation of action and integrity. She has spent her career mobilizing individuals and organizations to solve problems, seeing firsthand that, "Every day in our comm­unities, individuals are developing solutions to tough challenges, creating and growing business­es, and serving and defending our country." Those Georgia values of collaboration, entrepreneur­ship, and self-empowerment aren't being followed by our political leaders in Washington. Instead, political infighting and dysfunction have taken over. Michelle wants to replace finger pointing and political gamesmanship with finding the common ground that will lead to workable solutions and growing opportunity.

Michelle believes coming together makes us stronger and that goals can be achieved by thoughtfully and respectfully focusing on what connects individuals rather than on what divides them.

Job Creation and Economic Growth

As CEO of Points of Light, Michelle spent years working with business leaders across the country. She believes it's innovative entrepreneurs, hard working small business owners, business execu­tives and managers that create jobs. But our gov­ernment can help create the conditions in which businesses can thrive.

Michelle's specific goals include:
  • Simplifying the Tax Code so that it is fair and spurs economic growth, and
  • Providing Equal Pay for Equal Work so people get paid for the work they do, not who they are.
Cut the Debt
Rein in federal spending and address budget deficits. Michelle believes that if Congress can't do its job and pass a budget, it shouldn't get paid. And neither should the President.
No Budget, No Pay.
All our children must be able to attend schools that challenge and prepare them for successful careers and to be life-long learners. Investing in Preschool Education, Bringing Down The Cost Of College, and Expanding Successful Career & Technical Education Programs are essential to set our children on a pathway to compete in an ever-evolving economy.

Honoring Our Veterans
When our service personnel come home, they should have the opportunity to find a job, find a place to settle with their families, and use their know-how to help build strong communities. We must honor our commitment to them by taking steps that include Clearing the Claims Backlog so veterans don't wait months for benefits earned, Improving Educational Benefits, and Expand­ing their Access to Healthcare Coverage.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform
We need comprehensive immigration reform that secures our borders and provides an accountable pathway to citizenship that requires those cur­rently living here go to the back of the line, pass a background check, learn English, and pay back taxes. It's good for our economy and it's fiscally responsible - fixing our immigration system will create 1.4 million jobs by 2020 and cut our deficits by $850 billion through 2033.
Both internal and public polling show Michelle is a strong contend­er in the race. In a recent poll, out of four of the top contenders, Michelle is leading three and is tied with another.

Our research shows that Georgia voters want leaders like Michelle representing them in Washington - folks from outside the political process who bring a collaborative, hands on approach to solving problems.

Political analyst Charlie Cook recently moved this race from Lean Republican to Toss Up, reporting that Michelle, "is proving to be perhaps the best Democratic challenger of the cycle."

We have the momentum.
Now we need your help to bring growth to Georgia and common sense to Washington.
