Georgia Voter Suppression Bill (Advancement Project)

April 27, 2021

Lawsuit filed by Advancement Project National Office on behalf of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Concerned Black Clergy, Mijente, the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, Faith in Action and a coalition of churches against Georgia challenging the voter suppression bill Senate Bill 202. The case claims that S.B. 202 violates the 15th Amendment because it places an unnecessary burden on the right to vote. The RNC, NRSC, NRCC and Georgia Republican Party intervened in the case to protect S.B. 202. Litigation before the district court is ongoing.
