​ ​ ​ ​

Stacey Abrams is receiving ALL the praise that she’s rightfully due for her efforts to fight voter suppression in Georgia. Celebrate our democracy queen inside…

Bow down, Republicans!

The decades-long actions that intentionally suppress the democratic vote in Georgia have been handled.  And we have Stacey Abrams to thank.

Stacey Abrams was the Democratic party’s nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election where she ended up losing against her opponent Brian Kemp. There were accusations that Kemp engaged in voter suppression. Guess what? Stacey wasn’t about to let it happen again!

Following her lost, Stacey continued to “organize and work to ensure voting rights to the most disenfranchised people.”

 

 

And she didn’t let up.

Stacey launched the Fair Fight initiative to wage war on controversial practice such as voter-roll purging, removal of polling locations and the restrictive “exact match” rule for ballot signatures, which happened during her gubernatorial campaign.

Stacey Abrams didn't quit and fought the good fight which helped flip the state of Georgia blue - for the first time since 1992 - in favor of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Woot!

Last night, Biden-Harris took the lead in Georgia – a battleground state – as ballots continued to be counted. She gave a shoutout to everyone who has been organizing and working in the “trenches” to fight voter suppression, including late Congressman John Lewis.

WOOT!

Peep the celebratory tweets below:

#StaceyAbrams #JamesClybourn all poll workers, those tallying the vote and to everyone who voted this is for you, https://t.co/mlIMxxfn5I

Today, folks were on Twitter and black women started trending with people thanking black women for turning up at the polls.

Let’s be clear. Black women voted in our own best interest. Not soley to save others. If that happened to be what was best for the masses as well, then ...what does that say? 

Trust black women. Listen to black women.

Black women want protections of their human rights, equal pay, justice in sexual assault and rape cases, unbiased lending practices in business and home ownership instead of just a “thank you” for saving America from itself.

And that’s on PERIOD.
