Dear MoveOn member,
This November, Stacey Abrams has the chance to make history. On the same night that Democrats could end Republican control of Congress, Stacey could become the first ever Black woman elected governor in the United States.
That's right, in the entire history of America, a Black woman has never been elected governor in any state—but Stacey is ready to change that.
In her new book out next week, "Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change," Stacey not only shares her inspiring journey but also provides a handbook that applies to many other communities and individuals working for the common good.
Over 82% of MoveOn members in Georgia, where Stacey is running, voted to endorse her last year. Her book comes out right before her primary on May 22, and together we can help shine a national spotlight on her right before voters go to the polls. How? By helping to get her book on the best-seller list!
Stacey didn't grow up with much, so as an adult she has dedicated her career to giving back to her home state and helping make the lives of Georgians better. She founded the New Georgia Project, which registered over 200,000 voters of color from 2014 to 2016. She co-founded a financial services firm to help small businesses grow and bring more jobs to Georgia. And in 2011, she became the House minority leader in Georgia's General Assembly—the first Black woman to ever lead either party in the state.
In "Minority Leader," Stacey describes the experience faced by so many marginalized communities in our country: that institutional barriers are keeping dreams out of reach. But with passion—and compassion—she lays out a path to achieve those dreams and disrupt the systems that have kept them out of reach.
Stacey Abrams has spent her life speaking up for marginalized communities, standing up to those in power, and showing up to make life better for everyone around her. Now it is our turn to do the same for her.
Thanks for all you do.
