“The fundamental power of democracy lies in the right to vote, and if you protect that right, you create possibilities for everything else.”Stacey Abrams
Last Friday, the AAFCA family sat virtually with former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, Stacey Abrams, to discuss the new film ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY – now streaming on Amazon Prime.
Filmmakers Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortes examine the history of voter suppression in the United States, and highlight Abrams’s 2018 gubernatorial race against Republican candidate Brian Kemp.
A very timely and informative documentary, it serves as a motivator for those who are still undecided to use their voting power in this 2020 election, and encourages others who are prepared to vote with compassion and have a better understanding of what’s at stake.
