The last few days, Oprah has been campaigning for Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia and she’s pretty much been killing it.
Not only did she participate in two town halls for the candidate, but she also canvassed door-to-door.
For those of you who don’t live in Georgia, read below for the best moments of her speech on the stump for Abrams.
Don’t Listen to the Ads
“Vote your values. Vote your conscience. The vitriol and the ads, they are designed to confuse and confound you with fear. When you know the right thing, and you can feel it. You can’t be influenced by propaganda and fear.”
Appreciate Your Right to Vote
“For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote… you are dishonoring your family. You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering, and their dreams when you don’t vote.”
How would you react if @Oprah knocked on your door?
Earlier today, super-canvasser @Oprah knocked on super-voter Denise’s door! Denise already has a plan to vote early & volunteer hard to push us to victory in 4 days.

Be An Independent Woman
“I am an independent woman. I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do … I’ve earned the right to think for myself, and to vote for myself.”
Realize Your Vote Actually Matters
“Every single one of us — every single one of us — has the same power at the polls, and every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with.”
Remember You Have A Lot More Power Than You Think
“We see injustices, big and small, all around us every single day of our lives. And I know it’s easy for a lot of people to feel that you have no power against those injustices, but this is what I’m here to tell you: This land was made for you and me.”
