The state of Georgia recently passed SB 202, a law that changes many ways elections are run in the state.
Proponents of the bill say it makes voting more secure in Georgia, while opponents say it is aimed to suppress the minority vote. The bill was passed along party lines and has drawn national attention.
Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons, released a statement about the bill on Tuesday.
The statement reads as follows:
“Every voice and every vote matters and should be heard through our democratic process in Georgia. The right to vote is simply sacred. We should be working to make voting easier, not harder for every eligible citizen. To that end, AMBSE leadership, along with our nonprofit partners, conveyed that ideal directly to state official in recent weeks. Our businesses and family foundation will continue to actively support efforts that advance voting access for the citizens of Georgia and across the nation.”
