Why Stacey Abrams?

She is rather seen to be the perfect one to lead the documentary for reasons like- for an influencing film as this, the one leading must be seen highly by people so it could reach people’s hearts.
The issue of voter suppression is often overlooked by the authorities as well as by the people in America and other parts of the world too, and to highlight the issue- the one to lead must be a powerful figure who could also understand the importance and sensitivity of the issue, and how the documentary is capable of generating a reasonable amount of change in the upcoming US elections.
The documentary will offer Abram’s perspectives on the laws and barriers to voting in the United States as she is also well-known for claiming the tactic denied her the governorship of Georgia, where she lost by 50,000 votes to winner Brian Kemp.
The directors, Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortes, along with Abram are looking forward to a social impact campaign along with community-based organizations, nonprofit corporations, artists, activists, and influencers ahead of National Voter Registration Day. The launch shall run by name #ALLINFORVOTING, it is to curb misinformation about the voting process, and launch targeted campaign programming to educate and register first-time voters.
