With her 2018 campaign for governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams turned out more voters than any Democrat in the state’s history, including former President Barack Obama. She also invested in and developed a critical infrastructure for voter engagement and political action in the state. After witnessing the gross mismanagement of the election by the Secretary of State Office, Abrams launched Fair Fight to ensure every Georgian has a voice in our election system. Her resources, know-how and supporters would be critical assets to a winning presidential ticket.
Abrams received degrees from Spelman College, the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas and Yale Law School. Dedicated to civic engagement, she founded the New Georgia Project, which registered and added more than 200,000 voters of color to Georgia’s roster between 2014 and 2016.
As co-founder of NOWaccount, a financial services firm that helps small businesses grow, Abrams helped create and retain jobs in Georgia. And through her various business ventures, she helped employ even more Georgians, including hundreds of young people entering the workforce. As House Minority Leader, she worked strategically to recruit, train, elect and defend Democrats to prevent a Republican supermajority in the House, and she has worked across the aisle on behalf of all Georgians. During her tenure, Abrams stopped legislation to raise taxes on the poor and middle class and to roll back reproductive healthcare. She brokered compromises that led to progress on transportation, infrastructure, and education. In the legislature, she passed bills to improve the welfare of grandparents and other relatives raising children and secured increased funding to support these families.
