Publisher's Summary

"This is a narrative that describes the urgency that compels me and millions more to push for a different American story than the one being told today. It's a story that is one part danger, one part action, and all true. It's a story about how and why we fight for our democracy and win."

This program is read by the author.

Celebrated national leader and best-selling author Stacey Abrams offers a blueprint to end voter suppression, empower our citizens, and take back our country. A recognized expert on fair voting and civic engagement, Abrams chronicles a chilling account of how the right to vote and the principle of democracy have been and continue to be under attack. Abrams would have been the first African American woman governor but experienced these effects firsthand, despite running the most innovative race in modern politics as the Democratic nominee in Georgia. Abrams didn’t win, but she has not conceded. The audiobook compellingly argues for the importance of robust voter protections, an elevation of identity politics, engagement in the census, and a return to moral international leadership.

Our Time Is Now draws on extensive research from national organizations and renowned scholars, as well as anecdotes from her life and others’ who have fought throughout our country’s history for the power to be heard. The stakes could not be higher. Here are concrete solutions and inspiration to stand up for who we are - now. 

A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

"In a voice full of grace, warmth, and determination, politician and activist Stacey Abrams provides listeners with a road map for building a more just and democratic nation.... In a clear, direct delivery, Abrams shares her message with the fire and poise of an inspiring public speaker. This audiobook is a call to action." (AudioFile Magazine)

Relevant civil inspirations fr. leg. knowhow

Excellence. Pure, civil, nondevisive information spoken beautifully by the woman herself.
This is a woman who, if asked, would know or get or lead to the answers to: a.) quelling the enraged into positive activism, b.) empowering the needy, vulnerable and oppressed, c.) healing international, domestic & political relations and d.) inclusively restoring US credibility within and outside its borders. - Our bedrock. Our true greatness and dream. Our hope. Yes, she touches on all this here.
Absolutely love YelloPain - his vote is gonna count!
Great messages on the extreme importance of not staying home and voting at every turn, staying engaged, hope, and, remembering there are more heros out there than the oppressive populists deceitfully attack with.
This book harnesses much more than the "it takes a village" concept bc of Stacey Abram's credibility, experience and personal connection.

An inspiring call to win an election and fight for

"Our nation’s core narrative can be summed up in the disconnect between the Constitution’s pledge of equality and the rampant disregard for that ambition that has plagued the United States of America ever since." Abrams convincingly argues that voting rights are fundamental to operation of a democracy, and yet they are under siege. She teaches us how to fight back to better actualize the ideals of giving everyone a voice. This book is a fantastic primer on the history of voting rights and current threats to it, brought to life by stories of her family and her race for Governor of Georgia. And it's a bit job interview for VP, too. If she isn't selected as VP, after reading this, I feel like we need a new federal agency to oversee voting rights and the census, and Abrams should be its head.
