The Southern Poverty Law Center — in partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta — will make more than $10 million in grants available to Deep South organizations to build capacity and scale-up their voter outreach and civic engagement efforts over the next two years.
Two-year grants will enable nonprofits to work on a range of activities to secure full voter participation and achieve equitable representation, including:
- Voter registration and mobilization activities among voters of color, particularly those facing significant barriers to participation, such as returning citizens, young people, those who have been purged from voter rolls and infrequent voters generally not contacted by the major campaigns;
- Efforts to protect voting rights and ensure full access to voting as well as voting rights restoration for formerly incarcerated individuals; and
- Community engagement to achieve fair redistricting.
