The political organization founded by NBA superstar LeBron James will focus on protecting black voters and fighting GOP-backed legislation aimed at restricting voter access in the wake of the latest presidential election.

More Than A Vote will use the 2021 NBA All-Star Game in Atlanta to draw attention to recent efforts by Republican lawmakers in Georgia to make it harder for people to vote by pushing for restrictive election laws.

The Brennan Center says as of February, 43 states introduced 253 voter restrictive bills such as voter I.D. laws, purge voters, cutting absentee voting, and cutting same-day voting registration.
