Vielmetter Los Angeles continues our year-long donation pledge supporting effective change to dismantle police brutality, white supremacy, racism, and injustice.⁠ This month we are donating $1,000 to The New Georgia Project.
⁠⠀
The New Georgia Project is a nonpartisan effort to register and civically engage Georgians.
​Georgia’s population is growing and becoming increasingly diverse. Over the past decade, the population of Georgia increased 18%. The New American Majority – people of color, those 18 to 29 years of age, and unmarried women – is a significant part of that growth. The New American Majority makes up 62% of the voting age population in Georgia, but they are only 53% of registered voters.

• NGP’s goal is to register all eligible, unregistered citizens of color in Georgia by the end of the decade.

• Our research shows that citizens of color register through voter registration drives at twice the rate of whites.

• As of September 2019, NGP has registered almost half a million Georgians, in all 159 Georgia's counties.

We meet new voters where they are – in churches, on college campuses, and in their neighborhoods – to share information about how to register and how to vote. We are turning new registrants into informed and engaged voters, many for the first time ever.
⁠⠀
We will announce the next organization we are supporting on December 15th.⁠⠀
