Today, following the news that a federal judge has upheld Georgia Republicans’ maps that continue to silence Black voters and voters of color, DPG Executive Director Kevin Olasanoye released the following statement:
“We are disappointed in today’s ruling. Georgia Democrats fought hard for maps that would ensure Black voters had a fair chance to make their voices heard, but Republicans once again played partisan games with redistricting.
“While we respect the ruling, we are more committed than ever to ending Republicans’ days of diluting minority voting power via gerrymandering. Voter protection and empowerment is at the heart of Georgia Democrats’ mission, and we will fight harder than ever to ensure that every Georgia voter can make their voice heard in our democracy.”
