Why I'm Running

I’m running for Congress in Georgia’s 10th district because too many of us have been denied economic security and equal opportunity. It's time to take our fight to Congress. On May 22nd, let's set the course for the future.

Meet Richard

An educator, husband, father, and union member, Richard Dien Winfield has devoted his work to addressing societal problems. Seeing too many Americans denied dignity and economic security, Richard has supported striking workers, organized sugarcane laborers, and joined unionizing efforts at UGA, where he has taught for 35 years, inspiring students to seek truth and justice.

Richard knows now, more than ever, is our moment to address these issues - because we CAN enact laws that level the playing field and guarantee jobs at a fair wage, help us balance work and family, give us all access to quality healthcare, education, and housing, and allow us to finally overcome the disadvantages people face based on race, gender, and sexual orientation.

Fighting for a New Social Bill of Rights

1. Guaranteed jobs at fair wages

So that anyone who wants a job can get a job

2. A Super Medicare for All

So that we all have access to quality care without copays or deductibles

3. Paid family leave, free child care & elder care

So that no one has to make sacrifices to balance family and work

4. Worker empowerment & collective bargaining

Where employees have a say in the decisions that shape their lives

5. Legal Care for All

So that everyone has access to and true protection under the law


We can truly transform our 10th congressional district of Georgia, and even our nation. Let's do it. Let's make history, together!
