The New Georgia Project has launched their "Still Strong Go Vote" tour along with "Souls To The Polls" events to drive up voter participation ahead of the January 5th Georgia runoff election which will decide who controls the U.S. Senate.

Today, December 28, faith leaders and Churches will come together for a “Souls To The Polls” event in Augusta, Georgia to bring voters of faith to the polls ahead of the January 5th U.S. Senate runoff election.

The drive-in celebration starts at 1:00pm at Cathedral of Praise COGIC (302 Barrow Drive, Augusta, GA 30906). Space in the church for the kickoff event is limited in order to ensure proper physical distancing and follow COVID protocols.

The event will feature guest artist Travis Malloy and speakers including: State Representative Wayne Howard, State Representative Sheila Nelson, Commissioner Jordan Johnson, Rev. Augusta Hall (Pastor of Bethel AME Church), Rev. Anthony Booker (Pastor of Broadway Baptist Church and President of Baptist Ministers Conference of Augusta), and Rev. Melvin Ivey (President of the NAACP Augusta Branch).

As part of the “Still Strong Go Vote Tour”, the New Georgia Project will host “Souls To The Polls” events through the January 5 Senate runoff in Albany (12/29), Columbus (12/30), Decatur (1/2), Macon (1/3), and Savannah (1/4).

 The New Georgia Project is a nonpartisan effort to register and civically engage Georgians. To date, the NGP has registered nearly 500,000 people from underrepresented communities to vote in Georgia. In addition to registering voters, NGP also advocates for civil and human rights causes and works to advance justice on behalf of historically marginalized communities.
