Stacey Abrams and the Fight for Voting Rights

This week, Daniella and Ed chat with Stacey Abrams, the former candidate for governor of Georgia, about the importance of protecting each American's vote and pushing for election reform.

Part of a Series

If there’s a lesson that Stacey Abrams has taught us, it’s to never concede a cause that’s worth fighting for. The former candidate for governor of Georgia joined Ed and Daniella this week to talk about her work with Fair Fight 2020, a new group that seeks to ensure that every American has their right to vote protected. Abrams, who is a member of the board of directors at the Center for American Progress, also offers some insight on how progressives can build winning and inclusive electoral coalitions.
