Stacey Abrams likes to fix problems.

It’s why the high-profile democracy activist founded Fair Fight to combat voter suppression in Georgia after she lost the governor’s race in 2018.

Now, Republicans across the country are proposing legislation that would make it even harder for people to vote — but Abrams isn’t backing down.

Here & Now‘s Celeste Headlee speaks with Aarti Shahani, host of the WBEZ podcast “Art of Power,” about her wide-ranging interview with Abrams.
