Stacey Abrams, former Georgia gubernatorial nominee and former Georgia House Democratic leader, joins in an important conversation about her visions for the future of democracy with Johnnetta Betsch Cole, former president of Spelman College. Abrams, author of the recent bestseller Lead from the Outside, launched the organization Fair Fight after the 2018 gubernatorial election to ensure that every voter in Georgia and across the country has a voice in the democratic process.
