UPDATE ON GA CIVIL RIGHTS CRISIS FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: Georgia’s Voter Law Is Called ‘Jim Crow 2.0’ for a Reason
After Democrats turned Georgia BLUE for the first time in decades, Gov. Kemp signed a sweeping bill into law designed to lock voters out of the democratic process!
Team, sign the petition now to stand with Stacey Abrams and defend voting rights!
Team – this is scary.
First: Stacey Abrams and voting activists across Georgia worked to organize their communities, flipping Georgia from red to blue and delivering both presidential AND senate wins for Democrats!
Then: After record turnout from Black and brown communities, Georgia Republicans responded by pushing through a racist, extremist voter suppression bill limiting early voting and vote-by-mail – and even making it illegal to provide water to voters waiting in line to cast their ballot. Georgia’s election restrictions are already being compared to Jim Crow-era restrictions.
Now: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a NINETY-EIGHT PAGE voter suppression bill into law behind closed doors, making Georgia the first presidential battleground to impose new voting restrictions following President Joe Biden's victory.
We can’t let this stand. We must act now to stop voter suppression, elect Democrats, and defeat Republican governors like Brian Kemp. We urgently need 50,000 Democrats to stand with Stacey and stand up to condemn these GOP attacks on voting rights. Will you add your name now?
We need you to join us to stand with Stacey and fight back. With just a few hours left before our 11:59 p.m. deadline, we’re still 1,907 signatures short, but yours is missing, Team. So please, add your name immediately:
Stand with Stacey
