The odometer on voting rights activist Fenika Miller’s 2014 Ford Fusion has racked up nearly 300,000 miles. Most of those miles have been added since March when Miller’s organization launched an all-out blitzkrieg of sorts against Georgia’s controversial new election reform law.
As senior state coordinator for Black Voters Matter, Miller runs the organization’s operation from middle Georgia. Black Voters Matter works with more than 130 churches, nonprofit organizations, individuals and activist groups in 75 counties — 85 percent of which is in rural Georgia, Miller said.
