President Joe Biden did in fact award Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss with a presidential medal. According to this article, Ruby Freeman received this award because she "persevered by simply doing her job through those who tried to overturn the election that threatened her and her family." Shae Moss is the daughter of Ruby and received this award "for her work though the threats and harassment received during the election period."


A more well-known source further proves this claim to be true. The article stated "Biden is also awarding medals to Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, the mother and daughter Georgia election workers who were targeted with racist death threats after Giuliani and Trump amplified debunked conspiracy theories accusing them of having manipulated votes in the weeks after the 2020 election."
