We need lawyers to defend voters in Georgia

Earlier this year we called on attorneys to help defend our democracy by joining our National Voter Defense Network – through which individuals charged under the restrictive Jim Crow 2.0 voting rights laws would be defended for free by a legal professional.

We are continuing to recruit attorneys for this project, but this time under the VoPro and Voter Defender programs spearheaded by the New Georgia Project, our partner organization in this struggle.

Please sign up for these training sessions happening tomorrow, Tuesday, November 2:
