In a special March 31, 2021 Breaking News edition of his weekly For People podcast, Episcopal Bishop Rob Wright of Atlanta explores recently enacted changes to Georgia voting laws with Georgia state senator, The Reverend Kim Jackson.

Bishop Wright and Senator Jackson, who shepherds Atlanta’s homeless as Vicar of Church of the Common Ground, discuss the immediate and long-term impacts of SB 202, which has both drawn applause and provoked outrage.

In the age of information overload and fake news, Wright and Jackson get to the heart of Georgia’s new law that has drawn worldwide attention to the Peach State. They examine flash-point changes like prohibiting handing out food and water to people waiting in line to vote and other, less well-known provisions, that will challenge equal access to absentee and in-person voting.
