“We want everyone to know that there is space for you in the democratic process, even if you don’t have the ability to vote.”
On today’s election day edition, we are talking about getting out the vote with Angela Lang from Milwaukee-based organization BLOC. We talk about why we are voting, the joy of door knocking, and why the Black vote deserves to be heard. Ali shares a poem and this music video by “The Rights Girls.”
