Fair Fight will continue efforts to mobilize and educate voters in upcoming elections, along with policy pushes to expand Medicaid and boost healthcare funding in 2022 as the organization continues to track and combat disinformation.

“Stewart-Reid said the organization will continue to harness partnerships with other groups across the nation ‘to make sure voters of color are heard across the South and across the country,’ but she made clear what the center of her attention will be.”
“‘Our heart is in Georgia. It always will be. We’ll lead efforts aimed at educating voters of color in Georgia, and that will never change,’ she said.”
“‘We’re going to lean into making investments in voter education,’ Stewart-Reid said. ‘And we’re dedicated to being there for voters who have questions and concerns about whether their votes will be counted.’”
“…the organization is tracking several election-related bills this session of the Georgia General Assembly that she said would make election administration more difficult.”
“‘What elections officials need is more support and more engagement,’ she said, ‘not measures that will continue to stress their resources.’”
