Including: voter suppression, gerrymandering and protecting our votes
Stacey Abrams has been at the forefront in working against voter suppression and ensuring that every vote is counted.
Watch her address to Democrats Abroad UK – in September 2018 in her campaign for Governor.
Her response to the State of the Union Address – January, 2019.
“Let’s be clear. Voter suppression is real. From making it harder to register and stay on the rolls to moving and closing polling places to rejecting lawful ballots, we can no longer ignore these threats to democracy. While I acknowledge the results of the 2018 election here in Georgia, I did not and we cannot accept efforts to undermine our right to vote.”
Gerrymandering and Redistricting
David Daley is one of the foremost researchers and activists on the issue of gerrymandering. In this Salon Talk “Gerrymandering is destroying Democracy. How can we fix it?” streamed on April 26, 2019, he discusses the key issues we confront and what we can do!
We hope to screen Slay the Dragon soon. Hailed as incisive and inspiring, the film traces the projects and efforts that have been devoted to gerrymandering and that impact. It focuses upon the successful grassroots campaign in Michigan to ban partisan gerrymandering there.
President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder founded the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to promote fair redistricting.
