Voter Suppression in Georgia

How It Started vs How It’s Going

How it Started:

  • Black Voters Matter and our partners published ads in the AJC to raise awareness around voter suppression bills in the state of Georgia. We launched a text and phone banking campaign to urge corporations and legislators to take action against legislation restricting access to the ballot.
  • We continued our work on the ground with a Week of Action at Corporations to urge them to protect the vote such as UPS, Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, The Masters Tournament, The Georgia State Capitol, and more.

How it’s Going:

  • Senate Bill 202 has passed. Black Voters Matter has teamed up with The New Georgia Project and Rise Inc to file a lawsuit against the state of Georgia: Click Here to Learn More
