Michelle Obama and Chris Paul work together to raise awareness for National Black Voter Day

ChrisPaul, a security guard with the Phoenix Suns, continues to use his position to urge people to vote. He teamed with former first lady Michelle Obama on the occasion to raise awareness of the issue.

CP3 and Michelle wanted to educate black voters about the value of voting in a BET-sponsored film When We All Vote. The film was created to commemorate National Black Voter Day in 2022.


Paul and Michelle admitted there were more eligible voters than ever but urged more people to participate. In addition, they stressed the importance of everyone checking their registration status.

Paul noted, “Today is about acknowledging the power of our voices and the duty to use them. “Polling stations are closing, early voting times are being reduced and people are being removed from the electoral roll. Who would have thought voting rights would still be in jeopardy in 2022?” Paul took note.

In the past, a number of players have tried to educate the public about the importance of registering to vote. Numerous voter education efforts have been launched with support from the NBA.

Paul produced a video in 2020 outlining the importance of voting. He stressed the importance of getting to know the candidates and why voters should remain optimistic.

Paul has been a member of the league for 17 years but he has yet to win the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. The “Point God” was part of a number of candidates, but none of them were successful.

With the Suns, Chris Paul came closest to winning the championship in 2021. In his first NBA Finals appearance, he faced the Milwaukee Bucks. Unfortunately for him, the Suns lost the series in six games after squandering a 2-0 lead.

In the conference playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks last year, the Suns again lost a 0-2 series lead. It’s important to note that they were considered favorites to win the championship due to their excellent record of 64-18 in the regular season.

The Suns will try to improve next year. Deandre Ayton, whose place at the club was up in the air at the start of the summer, is still part of their core.

In 2021, Chris Paul and the Suns also agreed to a $120 million contract extension. To help the club win a league, the 37-year-old is expected to be there until 2025.
