King James has teamed up with other athletes and entertainers to create a platform not only to urge individuals to vote, but to get educated on voting.

During an interview with the New York Times, King James calls his organization More Than A Vote and he wants to bring awareness to the importance of exercising your political power as we prepare for the Presidential election in November.

LeBron in a statement said the following,

Yes, we want you to go out and vote, but we’re also going to give you the tutorial. We’re going to give you the background of how to vote and what they’re trying to do, the other side, to stop you from voting.

Other athletes and entertainers who have joined LeBron on this quest for voting rights are NBA players Trae Young, Draymond Green, and Udonis Haslemm, former NBA player Jalen Rose, WNBA player Skylar Diggins-Smith, from the NFL Alvin Kamara and actor comedian Kevin Hart.

LeBron continues to earn my respect as a person and player.

Let's make sure we all do OUR part in helping him spread his message of voting rights.
