Stacey Abrams a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize is responsible for assisting a record-breaking 7.6 million people being on the voter rolls in the state of Georgia.
Although the NAACP awards were virtual this year, it by no means meant that it was less important. After playing a huge role in helping new voters across the country in last year’s election, Stacey Abrams is finally getting notarized. Abram’s hard work and dedication led 800,000 new voters to elect the country’s first Black and Asian American woman to become Vice President.
In 2020 the state of Georgia was solidly red in most of the previous elections. This time around it was on the verge of becoming a blue state and this was something that could potentially transform the trajectory of politics for the better.
Abrams became an activist in making sure the vote count was fair. She founded the Fair Fight Action around the time of the 2020 election to reassure that someone had their eyes on the voter suppression issue that many were facing in previous elections.
Abrams was also a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. Her activism is responsible for assisting a record-breaking 7.6 million people being on the voter rolls in the state of Georgia, with 500,000 new voters coming from the efforts of Fair Fight.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fair Fight was able to raise $32 million. All of this had led to the state of Georgia becoming a blue state
Michelle Obama has claimed to be very impressed with her work even after losing in the 2018 gubernatorial race. Michelle Obama stated, “She is unapologetic in her efforts to expose any forces that get in the way of black citizens’ ability to exercise their rights to vote”.
