Bella Cockerell Supports the Georgia Muslim Voter Project

bc_1.jpegAs an admirer and employee of the Georgia Muslim Voter Project, MDP 2021 Bella Cockerell attended the book signing of Ibtihaj Muhammad’s “The Proudest Blue” on September 12th. Muhammad is the first female Muslim American to medal at the Olympic Games, the first Muslim American woman in hijab to compete for the United States in the Olympic Games, and named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People.  

Regarding her participation, Cockerell commented, “I’m here tonight not only to meet this amazing woman but also as an employee of Georgia Muslim Voter Project helping those still needing to register to vote or update their voter registration”.
