New Georgia Project

Atlanta, GA

New Georgia Project is a nonpartisan effort to register, civically engage, and build power with the New Georgia Majority–the large and growing population of Black, brown, young, and other historically marginalized voters in the Peach State.

Grant Amount

$10,000 (RRF) $60,000 (GAF)

Key Issues
  • Civil Rights
  • Racial Justice
  • Voting Access

New Georgia Project’s goal is to register all eligible, unregistered citizens of color in Georgia by the end of the decade. With the Voting Rights Act gutted, election officials are no longer required to obtain pre-approval for voting changes. We are currently seeing issues like precinct closures and reductions to early voting periods, which disproportionately affect communities of color.

In June 2022, New Georgia Project was awarded $10,000 to hold a 3-day training for 150 young, Black, queer, and women organizers and field operatives to learn and to build political power across communities in Georgia in preparation for the November elections.

Reproductive Justice is a fight for all human rights. Our work is more than just abortion rights. We fight for every human being living at the intersections of white supremacy, patriarchy, transphobia, and other systems of oppression.
