Georgia Democratic lawmakers file bill that would reinstate voting rights to felons
Democrats in Georgia have introduced a bill which would restore voting rights to felons. The bill’s supporters claim that felon disenfranchisement is rooted in the state’s history of preventing African American residents from voting and needs to end. The bill stands little chance of passage, as Republicans largely oppose it.

A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
