Black women helped pushed Stacey Abrams to victory during her historic Georgia Gubernatorial primary win.  Now she is one election away from becoming the nation’s first Black woman governor.

In 2010, Stacey became the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives.  She has stopped legislation to raise taxes on the poor and middle class, while passing legislation to improve the welfare of grandparents and other relatives raising children.  Stacey has secured increased funding to support these families.

“Stacey Abrams is a bold leader who knows what it takes to get results for Georgians,” former vice president Joe Biden said.

Stacey received degrees from Spelman College, the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas and Yale Law School.

The general election is November 6, 2018.
