In July 2017, myself, three of my children and over 500,000 Georgians received notices that were part of the largest voter purge attempt in US history then Sec. of State, now Governor, Brian Kemp.
Join me at Adams Park Library in SW Atlanta as I host a screening of Brave New Films documentary detailing part of my story along with others who discovered that they were disenfranchised from voting during Georgia’s 2018 election and how it is truly a #fighttovote in the state. Hear from those who are fighting to make sure the fundamental constitutional principle of “one person, one vote” matters for all and some of the ways we can fight back to preserve and strengthen the right to vote and have it counted.
After the film, a discussion panel will be held to talk about the various forms of suppression deployed in Georgia along with possible remedies we can use on the county, state and federal levels combat various forms of voter suppression and ensure we have fair and secure elections.
I hope you’ll join me for an evening of informing, inspiring and engaging residents in SW Atlanta about a serious topic. We have election officials who want to make it harder to vote. No real leader should ever makes democratic processes harder to access for any of its citizens.
Film starts at 6:30PM

– Nikema Williams | GA State Senator; Democratic Party of Georgia Chair
– Jeanne Dufort | Morgan County Democrats – Vice
