RISE UP & VOTE

RISE UP & VOTE

For centuries, sport has served as a catalyst to bring people together, fuel rivalries and foster inspiration. Sport also has the power to bring awareness to important social issues that impact communities all over the world. Atlanta Falcons Owner, Arthur M. Blank has always leaned into these important conversations knowing more must be done to unify our communities and use our collective voices for good. 

In 2017, Blank and Head Coach Dan Quinn engaged players and created a social justice committee to identify issues most important to them and to put a plan together toward progress. This season, the Falcons player-led social justice committee has made voter awareness an even bigger priority.  

The Falcons along with the entire Blank Family of Businesses will be working on a holistic initiative to focus on all aspects of the voting process: registration, education and participation.  

In the coming weeks, you'll learn more about what the Falcons will be doing to engage our season ticket members, our fans and our communities.

"Taking this moment and making it a movement, not just as a race, a community or a team, but as a nation… it's time to standup, rise up and vote." - Steven Means, defensive end, Atlanta Falcons.
