The Family Room is honored to host a conversation with Stacey Abrams—New York Times bestselling author of Lead From The Outside, former Georgia House Democratic Leader, and 2018 Democratic gubernatorial nominee about the importance of fighting voter suppression and ensuring that every American is counted in the 2020 Census.
Following her gubernatorial campaign in 2018, Abrams launched two organizations aimed at empowering Georgians. The first, Fair Fight, is dedicated to ensuring free and fair elections through litigation, legislation, and advocacy. The second, Fair Count, focuses on ensuring that hard to count populations such as people of color and non-English speakers are accurately counted in the Census.
We are grateful that each purchased ticket is a donation* to Metropolitan A.M.E. Church and will help with the preservation of this important, historic institution. It will also support the continued growth of The Family Room conversation series.
