Athletes and artists behind More Than A Vote, a voting rights coalition launched by LeBron James in June, released a letter urging fans to fight Black voter suppression. The letter was signed by James, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and USA Track athlete Allyson Felix — along with other prominent athletes and entertainers.
“Join us and take your protest to the election and fight to keep our community from being silenced,” the letter reads. “The most important thing you all need to know is Black voters matter more than ever.”
Last week, the organization worked with the Los Angeles Dodgers to make Dodger Stadium a polling site for November’s general election, joining a variety of sports venues to partner with the organization.
Sports Venue Voting Sites:
— Atlanta’s State Farm Arena
— Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium and Spectrum Center
— Detroit’s Henry Ford Pistons Performance Center
— Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center
