The Gathering: Voting rights are the heart of our democracy

If you valued your democracy, you would want everybody to be empowered and working towards the common good.
— Council Member Maria Palmer, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Live from Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove co-hosted The Gathering on July 2, 2017. We heard an analysis on the recent and historical attacks on voting rights, discussed why voting rights are a moral issue, and listened to community members Rosanell Eaton and Maria Palmer on how voter suppression has affected them at the intersections of race and immigration.
