BREAKING: We’re taking action against Randolph County, Georgia over its discriminatory decision to shutter polling sites.

This is nothing more than a racially motivated, voter suppression scheme that aims to lock Black voters out of a historic election cycle. @LawyersComm
We represent the core grassroots organizations on the ground in Georgia including the @NewGAProject @NAACPGA @gapeoplesagenda. Together, we have long been fighting dirty voter suppression tactics targeting Black voters across Georgia.

We are fighting for a a fair #Midterms2018.
Randolph County seeks to consolidate seven out of Randolph County’s nine polling places and voting precincts, leaving voters with only two polling places countywide. This will undoubtedly lock poor Black voters out of #Midterms2018.…
Voters in the Coleman Precinct will have to travel 10.3 miles away from their existing polling place, while voters in the Springvale Precinct will
have to travel 8.3 miles to their new site-- the Randolph Cty. Courthouse.

For poor Black voters, this is clear #votersuppression.

BREAKING: Tonight national racial justice organizations call for Senate Judiciary to delay or keep open #Kavanaugh hearings after White House’s unprecedented decision to block more than 100K of his documents.

Americans deserve to see Kavanaugh’s complete record. @LawyersComm
Burck has taken the unprecedented move of claiming executive privilege over more than 100K+ documents from the Bush era. The White House is intentionally denying the Senate access to docs NEEDED to review #Kavanaugh's record. This defies the constitution.…
It is simply impossible for Senators to carry out their constitutional duty to provide advice and consent when the White House is blocking access to Kavanaugh's record and when Grassley is playing along. This is a sham process and every American should be outraged.

BREAKING: We are taking action to stop the Public Interest Legal Foundation's attempt to promote a national voter purge campaign in 248 jurisdictions across the country. @lawyerscomm…
2/ This fall, the Public Interest Legal Foundation sent letters seeking to bully 248 jurisdictions into instituting purge programs. Purge programs are another dirty tactic used to suppress the rights of voters. Today we are taking action to fight back.
3/ The PILF letters use bad data and flawed methodology to promote baseless claims that non-eligible voters are on the rolls. Their letters to the are a naked attempt to bully officials into purging voters from the rolls. We see right through this.…
