LeBron James Voting Rights Group Partners With NBA To Fight GOP-Backed Voter Restrictions
More Than A Vote, the voting rights organizations launched by LeBron James, announced that it is partnering with the NBA and the Georgia NAACP to draw attention to recent efforts to roll back voting access in Georgia. More Than A Vote and the NBA plan to use the NBA All-Star game, played on March 7th in Atlanta, to give viewers the tools to shine a light on the issue, encourage greater civic engagement and participation, and give viewers the tools to “fight back.”
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
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.
