Stacey Abrams Is Writing, Organizing, And Ready To Date

Art of Power

Stacey Abrams, one of the highest profile democracy activists on the planet, is many other things: politician, entrepreneur, lawyer, novelist, even TV producer. She nearly became the first Black woman to govern a state in the U.S.In a wide-ranging conversation with Art of Power host Aarti Shahani, Abrams opens up about her inner wiring. She believes victory and defeat are rarely decisive, so stamina is key in efforts to protect the ballot. Part of her work is to give citizens a reason to believe in the system and fight “despair.” Abrams also explains why she writes novels to live the adventurous lives she cannot. And, she is a whole woman — not just a powerful leader — who is looking for love and working to improve her texting game. “I've not been great at dating,” Abrams tells Art of Power. “I think I could get better at it. I just have to practice.”

Stacey Abrams: How to be a Changemaker

Why Am I Telling You This? with Bill Clinton

On March 25, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a 98-page bill creating several new voting restrictions in the state—one of the now 361 bills in 47 states that have been introduced to restrict voting access since last November’s election. The right to vote is both fundamental to individual liberty and to the proper functioning of representative democracy. When voting rights are denied, diluted, or restricted, the ability of our government to solve problems, seize opportunities, and serve everyone is impaired—and its legitimacy is weakened.In this episode, Stacey Abrams joins President Clinton to discuss her work to register voters and protect voting rights in Georgia and across America. Together, they discuss how we can repair and restore faith in democratic institutions, elections, and voting, and what we can all do to achieve real, meaningful change.This conversation was recorded as part of the recent Clinton Global Initiative University meeting, hosted by Howard University.
