On August 4, Reuters will host a virtual Newsmaker event with Stacey Abrams, former Georgia House of Representatives Democratic leader and founder of Fair Fight & Fair Count.
Abrams has become a committed fighter against voter suppression. Ahead of the all-important November 2020 elections, she will join Reuters for an exclusive conversation about voting rights in the United States. The discussion will also cover the racial reckoning, how it will affect the elections, the role of African American voters and how to protect the vote.
