Description

Voter suppression has plagued America since its inception, and so has the issue of identity, who is really American and what that means. When tied together, as they are in modern politics, citizens are harmed in overt, subtle, and even personal ways. Stacey Abrams experienced the effects firsthand, running one of the most unconventional races in modern politics as the Democratic nominee for the governorship in Georgia and the first black woman major-party nominee in American history. Abrams did not become governor, but she will not concede. And the reason she won't is because democracy failed voters. However, fixing suppression isn't enough unless people understand how it works and how identity plays a pivotal role. Suppression and identity altered the 2016 presidential election and will do the same in 2020. But progress can win, and here Abrams lays out how. Abrams draws on extensive national research from her voter rights organization, Fair Fight Action, and her 2020 Census effort.
