This November, Georgians have the chance to elect Stacey Abrams as governor. An Ivy League-educated lawyer and a proven champion for women and families, Abrams has a vision for Georgia that gives everyone the freedom and opportunity to thrive.

Here are just a few reasons why you should vote for Abrams.

She’s a fierce advocate for reproductive health and rights

Abrams stands for every person's ability to make their own health care decisions and will fight to protect the life-saving care provided at Planned Parenthood health centers. When Abrams served in the state legislature, Abrams led the fight against the state’s 20-week abortion ban. She also voted against a bill that funded fake women’s health centers, which spread misconceptions and misinformation about abortion.

She wants to expand Georgians’ access to health care — not restrict it

Abrams has sponsored legislation to expand Medicaid in Georgia, and she vows to make it her first priority as governor. Medicaid expansion is a vital step to bring health care to nearly half a million Georgians, keep the doors open at rural hospitals, and ensure women have access to the care they need.

A vote for Stacey Abrams is a chance to make U.S. history

We need to elect candidates who reflect the communities they serve. If elected, Stacey Abrams would be the first Black woman governor in this nation’s history, period.

There are folks who don’t think it’s time for a black woman to be governor of any state, let alone a state in the Deep South. But there’s no wrong time for a black woman to be in charge. 

—Stacey Abrams

With one of the highest Black populations in the country, it’s past time the people of Georgia saw themselves reflected in those who lead them.

She’s the most qualified candidate in the governor’s race. Period.
