the tension and voter suppression we
are experiencing right now is not a result of us
losing, it is a result of us
winning,” states LaTosha Brown, community
organizer and co-founder of Black Voters Matter. In this
episode, she talks about the specific mechanics that
suppress Black votes, the importance
of activating Black voters, particularly in
rural areas, and the power marginalized groups and
young voters hold
to change democracies. LaTosha Brown
and Black Voters Matter have been credited for
significant voter registration efforts in several elections, among
them the 2020-21 U.S. Senate election in Georgia.
