"We don't care about the votes - we care about the voters."
The extraordinary LaTosha Brown - musician, artist and co-founder of Black Voters Matter, an US voters' rights advocacy organization - joins us on Call the Q. LaTosha takes us behind the headlines for a closer look at voter suppression tactics in US states like Georgia, Alabama and more, and how BVM and many other community organizations are working with legislators to protect vote access for Black, Indigenous, and other marginalized communities. We also talk about intersectional feminism, the ascendant leadership of Black women and women of colour, and about BVM's organizing model - one that both puts people before politics, and delivers the vote. Oh - and she sings for us ;)
