Summer is almost over and it's time to re-engage the Open Democracy Book Club! Please join us on October 14, 2021, 7 pm Eastern via Zoom for a discussion of Stacey Abrams book, "Our Time is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America." We continue to focus on the book club's theme: Where are we, how did we get here, and what are we going to do about it?"
"Stacey Abrams is not only a passionate advocate of democracy but also an inspiring example of how to practice it. In Our Time is Now" she exposes systematic voter suppression efforts across America and tells us what we need to do to fight back. This book is an essential tool kit for citizens of all backgrounds who believe, as I do, that democracy is not a spectator sport." Madeleine K. Albright, former US Secretary of State.
"Following her historic run for governor of Georgia in 2018, Stacey Abrams led a nationwide effort to empower and enfranchise voters to participate in our democratic process. With Our Time is Now, she's set out a comprehensive road map for engaging those voters, tearing down barriers to participation and making our democracy live up to its highest ideals." Julian Castro, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
