Faegre Drinker is proud to have joined many other law firm managing partners and corporate general counsel in signing a joint statement supporting the right to vote. The statement comes as a response to Georgia’s new voting law (S.B. 202), which passed on Mar. 25, 2021.
S.B. 202 raises concerns about making voting more difficult for Georgians and disproportionately impacts economically disadvantaged voters and voters of color, especially Black voters.
In support of voting rights, Faegre Drinker signed the following statement:
“Equal access to voting is a fundamental right in the United States. Making voting easier, not harder, for all eligible voters should be the goal of every elected official. Election laws that impose unnecessary obstacles and barriers on the right to vote and that disenfranchise underrepresented groups represent a significant step backwards for all Americans. Now, more than ever, courageous leadership is required from our elected officials. We, the undersigned law firm managing partners and corporate general counsel, denounce all efforts to restrict the constitutional right of every eligible American to vote and to participate in our democracy.”
