Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, released the following statement on the recent signing of SB202 and the arrest of Rep. Park Cannon:

“The recent underhanded attack on Georgian’s voting rights by Governor Brian Kemp is reminiscent of the Jim Crow era. This is nothing more than an attempt to suppress the voters and make it harder for Georgia’s most vulnerable communities.

Further, state Rep. Park Cannon’s arrest and detainment for simply knocking on the Governor’s door is a gross misuse and abuse of power. Georgia’s highest elected official exploiting his authority to suppress a sitting representative and the voters places the state down a dangerous path.

We will work with our Georgia state conference and branches to end this blatant encroachment on the people’s voting rights.”
