black voter suppression
Jayla Jackson took the stage at the March On For Voting Rights rally in Atlanta, Georgia Saturday morning poised and ready to work. The 16-year-old poet and activist calmly took a breath then delivered one of the most impactful speeches of the entire day.
Cliff Albright, the co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund, said the most troubling parts of SB 202 are the provisions diluting Georgia's secretary of state’s power and allowing local county boards to take over an election.
Georgia advocacy organizations want corporations to stop funding voter suppression. The organizations responded to a recent investigation of political donations to Republican legislators.
The election results are official, but for many Black voters, concerns about efforts to disenfranchise their ballots this year will linger.
Persuading Black voters to vote despite the pandemic — coupled with the same obstacles that kept Black voting down in 2016 — rendered a numerically flat turnout a victory, local activists said.
