As Republican-led states clamp down on voting rights, we look at how Black voters are helping to organize unprecedented voter turnout ahead of midterms. "We are literally fighting for democracy," says LaTosha Brown, co-founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund, who says organizing voters is "the winning strategy" despite the resolve of the "consulting class" to invest campaign funds primarily in TV ads.Georgia's special election Senate races in early 2021 were "not a fluke, "says Brown. "We need to recognize that it is going to be community-led efforts, grassroots democracy groups that are literally our best defense on the frontlines from protecting us against facism." This comes as President Biden announces he has authorized the transfer of $10 million from the Democratic National Committee to House and Senate Democratic campaign committees.
