Today’s Action: Text-bank against corporate sponsorship of voter suppression in Georgia!

From the moment Georgia voters flipped the states blue for Biden/Harris, the GOP began rolling out their response: a huge fresh wave of voter suppression against the people (mostly Black voters) who made it happen.

But nearly every political campaign hinges on major donors…and it’s time for Georgia’s corporations who claim to love democracy and support Black rights to put a stop to this racist voter suppression. Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, UPS, and AFLAC all have made significant financial contributions to the GOP Georgia lawmakers who are sponsoring these bills, and if they pull their support, the bills will die.

The incredible Black activists who organized their communities for the November election need nationwide support in keeping Georgia’s Black votes protected – because many of the folks they organized are about to find it even harder to vote in the next election if these bills pass.

Text-banking opportunities TODAY, Thursday, and Friday for #GeorgiaOnTheLine! Contact Georgia voters and urge them to hold Georgia’s corporations and Chamber of Commerce accountable to Black voters! 

Two egregious bills in particular are expected to pass (HB 531 and SB 241). Combined, these two would require photo IDs for absentee ballots – or eliminate no-excuse absentee voting entirely – cut weekend voting hours, and reduce ballot drop boxes. In other words, the GOP is strategically cutting all of the legal and fraud-free routes Black voters used to defeat Trump and flip the Senate.

Corporations in Georgia have a choice: stay silent and allow the return of Jim Crow era policies…or actually use their financial influence to protect Georgia’s voters.

Let’s ensure they choose wisely.

Text-bank if you believe #BlackVotesMatter! Sign up for a shift this TODAY, Thursday, and Friday  to inform and urge Georgia voters to speak to GA corporations and leadership about protecting Georgia’s vote!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling for universal healthcare now, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
