In the continuing fallout against the voter suppression law Georgia Republicans have ushered in--after Joe Biden, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were victorious in the 2020 Election, and in the Jan 5. runoffs, the latest organization to join its name to the denunciations of these undemocratic actions is the SAG-AFTRA union.

According to SAG-AFTRA, they "represents approximately 160,000 actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other media professionals."

SAG-AFTRA today released the following statement:

"We oppose any effort to suppress the constitutional rights of Americans, including our members. It is clear that there is plenty of work to do to make our communities more fair, equitable, and safe. This includes protecting the sacred right to vote. The more voices and perspectives we see at the ballot box, the stronger our democracy and our people will be.

"We encourage SAG-AFTRA members everywhere to make themselves heard, stand up against injustices, and support laws designed to level the playing field."
