Watch the trailer for i-D’s new film, Up + Rising Atlanta
We meet the youth activists and organisers who changed the course of America
Despite Trump supporters storming the Capitol in Washington on 6 January, President-Elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated today. In the week of the Georgia run off elections, i-D met the young voters in Atlanta who helped to flip the state blue and prevented a Republican majority in the Senate, which will be key to undoing the harm of the past four years.
“Voting in an election is the peaceful overthrow of government,” says Stacey Abrams, the Georgia Democrat who was integral in organising across her state. Today we witness that hopefully peaceful transition. Watch the full film on i-D next week.
