The Southern Poverty Law Center — in partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta — has launched its Vote Your Voice initiative to help support voter registration and mobilization efforts in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
SPLC is investing up to $30 million from its endowment in nonpartisan, nonprofit voter outreach organizations in these states to increase voter registration and participation among people of color.
The Vote Your Voice campaign seeks to: empower communities of color by aiding them in their fight against voter suppression; support Black- and brown-led voter outreach organizations often ignored by traditional funders; support and prototype effective voter engagement strategies; and re-enfranchise returning citizens despite intentional bureaucratic challenges
