With November's elections on the horizon, the September meeting of the Inclusive Reading Club will focus on voter suppression in the United States. Why are some communities disproportionately affected by tactics such as voter roll purges, changes to voter ID requirements, the rigging of rules and gerrymandering? Participants will read excerpts from Stacey Abrams' new book, "Our Time is Now," specifically focusing on how the census shapes America, while other selected materials will explore how some communities are confronting acts of voter suppression.
