Stacey Abrams was the Georgia gubernatorial candidate that we all expected to win in 2018. After losing that race, she decided to get to the root of the cause: voter suppression. Stacey launched Fair Fight in 2019 with a cause to fight for free and fair elections in Georgia and around the country. Another one of Fair Fights missions is to mobilize with other organizations and register voters that are otherwise disenfranchised and therefore have their votes suppressed.

Fair Fight has had such success that in 2021 Georgia elected Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff - its first ever African American and Jewish senators. A lot of people are crediting this to the litigation, legislation and effort that Fair Fight and others are putting toward the voting rights cause. 

Stacey Abrams is a leader and game changer. She has worked tirelessly toward ensuring voting is equitable for all.
