WIL Listen Episode 7: The Future of Our Democracy: Are We Bending Towards Justice?

This month Elizabeth Stribling with South Carolina Women in Leadership talks with Emily Geiger Smith, author of Thank You for Voting: the Maddening, Enlightening, Inspiring Truth About Voting in America, and David Daley, author of the National bestseller, Ratf**ked: Why Your Vote Doesn’t Count and Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy. In this episode you’ll hear their thoughts on: legislative redistricting currently underway in South Carolina and what invested organizations like SC WIL and citizens might do to make sure their votes count for the next ten years; the ebb and flow of voting rights and access through the years and their perspectives as to whether we are “bending towards justice”; how the “boiling point” were at, demonstrated by the insurrection on the Capitol on January 6, makes horrifying sense; and if we can be optimistic about the future of our democracy.
