In this episode of Divided By Design, we discuss the history of democracy in America. The promise of America is that we all come to the table of democracy as equals. But our democracy is in crisis. Long before the 2020 election or the coronavirus pandemic, laws and processes have been in place to disenfranchise many Americans from exercising their right to vote. How did we get here? This episode features political leader, voting rights activist and New York Times bestselling author Stacey Abrams, National Urban League CEO Marc Morial and noted voting rights attorney and Democracy Docket publisher Marc Elias.
