As the 2020 elections head towards the final stretch and the votes continue to be counted, Georgia stands out as a critical state, seemingly flipping blue with the last rush of tallies. The state hasn’t voted Democrat for president since 1992, when Bill Clinton won by a small margin, and as the votes trickle in, many are praising Stacey Abrams, the Yale Law School graduate and former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives for the turnaround. Abrams’ experience as the former gubernatorial candidate from Georgia, losing a narrow election to Brian Kemp in 2018 after accusations of voter suppression, led her to start the voting rights non-profit organization, Fair Fight Action.
The documentary All In: The Fight For Democracy, released in September, examines issues of voter suppression in America, interweaving personal experiences with rare footage, activism and historical insights. Narrated primarily by Stacey Abrams, the documentary offers an in-depth look into voting laws and barriers that have historically influenced elections in the South.
