Efforts to suppress the vote & depress voter turnout are alive & well in Georgia.

In Randolph—a predominantly Black, rural, low-income county—the board of elections may cut the # of polling locations from 9 down to only 2.

Many would be forced to walk 10+ MILES to vote. #gapol
We are outraged, but we are not discouraged.

Your right to vote is yours. It is a right our ancestors fought and bled for, and we have no choice but to continue that fight.

It is time to pick a side, to pick up the baton, to fight like our future depends on it—because it does.
We can win, but only if we all step up right now.

To reach every voter, knock on every door, give rides to the polls. To fight until everyone knows the power of their vote, has a reason to use it, and sees what is at stake if they do not.

Join the fight:
Defending our right to vote is personal for me. I grew up hearing my parents' stories about how they had to fight for their right to vote in the Jim Crow South. Their bravery influenced my decision to create the New Georgia Project to register every eligible voter in the state.
Our ability to participate in government, to elect our leaders and to improve our lives, is contingent upon our ability to access the ballot. We know in our heart of hearts that voting is a sacred right. Now, it is time to step up and live that truth through our actions. #gapol
Now is the time to defend our values & protect the vulnerable—from Randolph to Rabun Co.—and to understand that our democracy only works when we work for it.

Your right to vote is yours. It's a right worth fighting for. And we're going to give you a reason to use it in November.
