Organization calls meeting to support voter awareness

The Georgia Get Out the Vote coalition will host a town hall meeting titled “Young and Old Souls to the Polls” Thursday 7-9 p.m. at First Iconium Baptist Church, 542 Moreland Avenue S.E., Atlanta.

The discussion is apart of a non-partisan effort to support democracy and voting in the upcoming elections. The coalition seeks to empower voters through information, inspiration and involvement through research, voter registration and voter education.

Local high schools, youth and community organizations, elected officials and candidates will be in attendance.

Keynote speaker will be Bishop Teresa E. Snorton. Snorton was elected the 59th Bishop of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, the denomination’s first female elected to the episcopal office.

The Get out the Vote coalition is comprised of the AME and CME churches, Church of God in Christ, The Seventh Day Adventist, Concerned Black Clergy, Atlanta Business League, Voter Empowerment Collaborative and many others.
