The UUA President invites a distinguished guest each year to address the General Assembly as the Ware Lecturer. For 2021, Stacey Abrams and Desmond Meade were selected to share the honor. Stacey Abrams is the New York Times bestselling author of Our Time Is Now and Lead from the Outside, an entrepreneur and a political leader. She served as Democratic Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives for 7 years prior to running for Governor of Georgia, where she won more votes than any other Democrat in the state’s history and subsequently spearheaded a successful movement against voter suppression. Desmond Meade is a formerly homeless returning citizen who overcame many obstacles to eventually become the President of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), Chair of Floridians for a Fair Democracy, a graduate of Florida International University College of Law, and a Ford Global Fellow. He is the author of Let My People Vote: My Battle to Restore the Rights of Returning Citizens. Rhonda Johnson will host this showing. Our weekly Reflection Space will follow for a chance to share your thoughts about what you just viewed.
