Biden and Harris take firm stance on voting rights at AUC

On the grounds of the Atlanta University Center (AUC), President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris delivered speeches advocating for voter’s rights on Tuesday, January 11. With a coalition of civil rights organizations present to support voting acts, hundreds came together to listen to what could be done about voter suppression across the state of Georgia. 

Before rallying at Clark Atlanta University, Biden and Harris, accompanied by former Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Senator Raphael Warnock landed earlier that afternoon at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, where they were greeted by newly elected Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens.
