Thank you, Stacey Abrams

by Sylvie Baggett


Back in our fall 2020 issue, Stacey Abrams said that everything would be ok. “Things are changing,” she said. “Trust me.” Now, with Rev. Raphael Warnock—Georgia’s first Black senator—declared the winner over Kelly Loeffler, while Jon Ossof maintains a slim lead over David Perdue, Americans can rest assured that Abrams has made good on her promise. 

After her gubernatorial loss in 2018 to Brian Kemp, Abrams made it her mission to mobilize Georgia voters of color and fight voter suppression through her various organizations, including the New Georgia Project, Fair Fight, Fair Count, and the Southern Economic Advancement Project. With over half a million people registered, Abrams has largely been credited with Georgia’s blue flip in the 2020 presidential election and that momentum has continued on to the Senate races. 

Abrams took to Twitter earlier to celebrate the latest victory, thanking the many volunteers and members of Fair Fight for the outcome of the races. 

And, of course, Twitter thanked her right back.

We can’t thank you enough, Stacey.
