American politician and voting rights activist, Stacey Abrams of Georgia has received a nomination for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, one of five Nobel Prizes established to award outstanding contributions in peace.
Abrams was given a social standing ovation from her efforts leading up to the 2020 presidential election by moving to register thousands of Georgia voters and urging them to use their constitutional powers to induce change in their communities. Her goal to register new voters began well before she ran for Georgia Governor in 2018, but after losing an extremely close, and seemingly unfair race with Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, Abrams turned up the heat.
From the loss, Abrams identified areas of opportunity to make sure that all eligible voters had the tools to make their voices heard, thus creating the Fair Fight Initiative.
“I’m making it my mission to advocate for free and fair elections,” says Abrams via Fairfight.com.
Abrams has been seen as the catalyst for change in Georgia’s 2020 Presidential and Senate races, thus turning Georgia’s red clay blue.
Give Stacey Abrams her flowers!
