Fight against Evil:
WHY WE FIGHT
One of the keys to any strong democracy is the citizen’s right to vote. Equal representation and your ability to vote is the only way to have a healthy democratic society.
But over the past 30 years, there has been a consistent effort to suppress a certain demographics’ right to vote similar to the old days of poll taxes and literacy tests of the Jim Crow era. Modern voter suppression efforts, like voter roll purges and voter ID laws are relentless and effective.
This is a statement from the Fairfight website.
“Efforts to discourage and disenfranchise voters—in voter registration, ballot access, or counting of votes—have a catastrophic effect on our democracy and our communities. The facts and faces of voters from the 2018 election in Georgia convey the insidious design and pervasive impact of voter suppression.”
The Fairfight group focuses on
- 1.6 million voters were purged from the voter rolls from 2010-2018, leaving them ineligible to vote.
- Nearly 30,000 voters were forced to vote on a provisional ballot, most of which did not count.
- Thousands of absentee ballot applications were lost or rejected, disenfranchising voters, particularly voters of color.

Do not… meaning your should not engage, deal with, or work for.
Compromise is the act of surrendering core values or beliefs in order to achieve a perceived solution.
We define evil as a deliberate harmful action.
Evil is not an opposing viewpoint or ideology.
Evil is not an individual person, organization, business, or government entity.
However, evil is the premeditated, harmful action done by an individual person, organization, business, or government entity.
