The VOTING WHILE BLACK podcast goes beyond the rhetoric to reveal how the Democratic candidates for president really think about race. There is no doubt that the promise of fighting racism—and creating a truly equitable, just and safe society for everyone—will play a powerful role in motivating voters in the 2020 election.
