It's election day: the time to exercise our constitutional right to vote. While it should be simple to cast a ballot, it's often not. And that's not by accident. The Black vote has never truly been protected, and many states are passing new legislation to actively suppress Black votes. In BGG's Season 9 finale, A'shanti welcomes back previous guest LaTosha Brown, the co-founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund. Together, they lay out the various forces at play in our country that contribute to voter suppression, and discuss why building political power and embracing community is so vital when it comes to turning the political tides. It's no secret that there's a lot on the ballot this November – and ActBlue makes it easy to support the candidates and causes you care about.
