The NAACP released a new ad featuring award-winning actor, rapper, and writer Common that will run in Georgia between now and the January 5th Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections.

The ad is part of the civil rights organization’s efforts to engage and mobilize Black voters throughout the state and carry the overarching message of the NAACP’s “Black Voices Change Lives” campaign, an unprecedented campaign to persuade and mobilize Black voters in the 2020 General Election.

“This election cycle is not over and we must continue to do everything we can to make sure the voices of Black voters are heard,” said Derrick Johnson, President of the NAACP. “Already more than 2 million Georgians have voted despite the continued assault we continue to see on our voting rights in Georgia and Washington. If we are to effectuate change in our community and country, we need Black voters to show up to the polls. Our lives continue to depend on making our voices heard and we cannot and will not be silenced.”

The script from the ad reads:

Georgia.

In November, you sent a clear message to the rest of the country.

A message that made history and changed the future.

In cities and towns in this great state

Black people harnessed their power

And said loud and clear.

Enough is Enough.

Now, we need you to do it again.

To use your power at the polls on January 5th.

Vote.

Like your life depends on it.
