Press Advisory: ACLU of Georgia Kicks Off Smart Justice Georgia Campaign with Ariane Davis
Andrea Young, Executive Director, ACLU of Georgia
“Criminal justice reform is on the ballot in November. We are giving voters the information they need to vote for candidates who will continue to reform our criminal justice system to end racial injustice and mass incarceration,” stated Andrea Young, Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia.
“Mass incarceration separates families, costs taxpayers, and is disproportionately used to disenfranchise people of color,” stated Burrell Ellis, Political Director of ACLU of Georgia. “Criminal justice reform is a pre-eminent racial justice issue which is the reason we must vote for candidates who support Smart Justice.”
Ariane Davis, primarily known for her role in Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, is far from the stereotypical reality star.
“While I continue to aspire to inspire,” stated Ms. Davis, “I use my platform for a message bigger than myself. That is the reason that I’ve teamed up with the ACLU of Georgia to promote Smart Justice Georgia.”
Press Conference to launch the Smart Justice Georgia Campaign and unveil the dedicated website with legislative and statewide candidate scorecards that will go live at the campaign launch party that evening at 6pm at the main office. The launch party is open to the press.
