Stacey Abrams is a supporter of welcoming refugees and immigrants and building a robust refugee resettlement program. Abrams grew up in Gulfport, Mississippi, one of six children whose parents had three tenets: go to church, go to school, and take care of each other. Abrams did not win her groundbreaking 2018 campaign for governor, but she did not quit. She got right back to work because she understood that she didn’t need the title of governor to make a difference in the lives of Georgians. Since then, Abrams has helped small businesses get the finances they needed to stay afloat and helped expand access to COVID-19 tests and vaccines, especially in rural Georgia. Through multiple leadership positions in the small business, nonprofit and government sectors, she has opened the gates of opportunity to others across Georgia. In 2010, Abrams became House Democratic Leader in the Georgia General Assembly, the first woman to lead either party in the state legislature and the first Black Georgian to lead in the House of Representatives. As Democratic Leader, she stopped legislation that would have created the largest tax increase in Georgia history, keeping more money in the pockets of our families. She is ready to lead Georgia into its next and greatest chapter.
