My message to a #GOP determined to silence voters that look like me: “Republicans we see your white supremacy. We will NEVER get tired of fighting it and most importantly WE WILL DEFEAT IT.” #gapol #votersuppression #HB531 https://t.co/v80bfdY8Nt

This was an incredible speech against voter suppression in Georgia "Republicans got the message they were in a political death spiral. And now they’re doing anything they can to silence the voices of Black and brown voters specifically because they largely powered these wins" https://t.co/RzRU0q9WRj

“the GOP has dropped any pretense of trying to appeal to a majority of Americans. Instead, it caters to a conservative white minority that is drastically overrepresented in the Electoral College, the Senate & gerrymandered legislative districts” https://t.co/CJol4P47Np

68% of Americans support For the People Act, most important democracy reform bill since Voting Rights Act, but it can be filibustered by 41 GOP senators representing just 21% of country This is why we need to abolish filibuster to protect right to vote https://t.co/Kjg8b4yS7K

Why so much movement behind bills restricting how folks vote? At least in GA, the Dems beat the Rs at their own game. @AriBerman -- and the legislators pushing against these laws -- explain: https://t.co/l2Oxhk5me6
