Join us live: LGBTQ advocates fighting voter suppression in Georgia

Add this share
Georgians may face a raft of new voting restrictions as Republican lawmakers respond to the state turning politically blue. Join us Friday for a discussion about those efforts with LGBTQ lawmakers and voter engagement experts. 

State Rep. Renitta Shannon, a Democrat and outspoken critic of efforts to restrict voting access in the state, and Jerry Gonzalez, CEO of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, join Project Q Atlanta founder Matt Hennie to discuss the proposals and how they could impact LGBTQ voters.

Join the latest episode of Q Conversations on Friday at 1:45 p.m.

LGBTQ and equality advocates spent millions of dollars to mobilize voters ahead of the November election and January runoffs. Now, they face efforts to limit no-excuse absentee voting, ban ballot drop boxes and limit early voting as Republicans react to record-setting voter turnout and losing the presidential election in November and two U.S. Senate seats in January.

RSVP now to join the event and to let us know your questions for the panel.

The event is made possible by a grant from the Election SOS Rapid Response Fund.
