ATLANTA, GA – The parent body of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia, Inc. believes the right to vote is a fundamental tenet of our democracy. To that end, GMBC denounces any form of voter suppression and will stand against any attempt to limit the right of voters to cast their ballots or participate in the voting process.
As Black Baptists of all backgrounds and experiences, we know all too well the immense sacrifices that have been made to ensure all Americans have the right to vote. Regardless of one’s political affiliation the right to vote must be protected and GMBC will utilize the collective power, agency, and influence of our membership along with the work of the National Baptist Convention USA, Inc. to protect the right to vote for all Americans.
The Black vote in the last election made a crucial difference and it is critical that those jurisdictions who seek to marginalize that vote be stopped. GMBC supports the passage of the For the People Act, or H.R. 1., the congressional bill to protect the disadvantaged and expand voting rights.
