Voting is hugely important – especially right now. In this episode, Hillary is joined by musician John Legend and voting rights advocate Stacey Abrams to discuss the ongoing struggle to expand voting rights, and their thoughts as America approaches a hugely consequential election. Hillary also reflects on the legacies of her heroes and friends Congressman John Lewis and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. John Legend is an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award-winning musician and the founder of Free America, a criminal justice reform advocacy organization. He recently helped launch “Free The Vote,” a fundraising campaign to pay the fines and fees preventing ex-felons in Florida from casting their ballot. He released his newest album, Bigger Love, in June.  Stacey Abrams was the 2018 Democratic nominee for Governor of Georgia and previously served as the minority leader in the Georgia House of Representatives. As the founder of Fair Fight and Fair Count, she has been a major force in the push to advance voting rights and ensure fair elections. Her new book is Our Time is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America. Full transcript is here.
