The pandemic has exacerbated many of the issues faces.

Why does Social Security Matter?

*45% of Black seniors and 52% of Latinx seniors rely on Social Security for all or nearly all of their income.

*Social Security pays monthly benefits to more children than any other federal program.

*Over 9 million veterans received Social Security benefits in 2020.

*Millennials are projected to rely more on Social Security for their retirement security than their parents or grandparents.

In the mid-80s the Walkers became entrepreneurs, starting Paragon Productions, a public relations and marketing firm that became very prominent in the metro Atlanta business and political communities.
The will direct nearly $2B to expand Medicaid in Georgia—helping roughly 500,000 Georgians secure the health care they need. Today, I met with folks at Emory Healthcare in DeKalb County and the Lou Walker Senior Center to hear first-hand what this critical investment means for Georgia.
