Atlanta - Civil rights groups file new lawsuit over Georgia voting law
By Kevin Colleran
ATLANTA - Civil rights groups have filed a federal lawsuit challenging Georgia’s new Republican-backed election law, claiming that it makes it "much harder" for all of the state's residents to vote.

The lawsuit was filed Monday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the American Civil Liberties Union, the NAACP, and two law firms on behalf of Georgia Sixth District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, and three non-partisan voting nonprofits.

In a letter to more than 90,000 parishioners Monday, Bishop Reginald Jackson, who presides over more than 400 African Methodist Episcopal churches in Georgia, said the law is "racist and seeks to return us to the days of Jim Crow."

"Governor Kemp and the other racists behind this legislation think we are still living in a different time. They don’t get it. They are out of touch," Jackson said in a statement. "They do not understand that Georgia and our country have changed. And most of all, now, they are on record as being on the wrong side of history."

Jackson called for corporate leaders at Georgia-based companies like Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines to speak out in opposition, calling for a boycott on the companies for not speaking out more forcefully against the law.
