LeBron James, Patrick Mahomes partner on website aimed at fighting Black voter suppression

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James wants to use his platform to create change. James launched a website Monday aimed at “combating systemic, racist voter suppression.”

James joined up with a number of athletes — including Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes — and artists to create the site, called “More Than A Vote.” James, 35, teased the site a few days ago on Instagram. James’ post included a quote from his mother which read, “Don’t talk about it, be about it.”

The site, which went live Monday, asks visitors to sign up if they would like more information.
