Summary
More than 80,000 refugees have settled in Georgia since the 1980s and 10,000 of them were placed just outside of Atlanta in the small city of Clarkston. As a result, Clarkston's population went from 97 percent American-born to 53 percent foreign-born. We return to Clarkston to follow unlikely candidates in the city's 2013 local election, as three Mayoral and City Council candidates are former refugees who will be running for office-and voting-for the first time. Will they be able to bring new voters to the polls and make their voices heard? America By the Numbers documents this remarkable moment in Clarkston's history.
