Stacey Abrams is on everyone's mind right now. In this "Part 2" episode recapping last week’s historical events, we're revisiting our conversation with Stacey Abrams.
Within 24 hours that Georgians sent its first African American Senator and its first Jewish senator to Washington DC - the Capitol was stormed. And just within days of the historic turnout (4.4M+ Georgians voting in a runoff), Republican state legislators are already at work to curtail future mail-in voting.
After Stacey lost the 2018 Georgia Governor's race to Brian Kemp, she created Fair Fight Action, focused on voter protection. There is a lot of speculation on whether Stacey will run again in 2022, but Stacey's priority is still to make sure everyone can vote, and everyone's vote is counted.
Rose and Stacey spoke last spring, and had a candid and intimate conversation about hard lessons learned from the Governor's race, the curious life of introverts during quarantine, and what the future holds for this entrepreneur-turned-politician-moonlighting-romance novelist. Before Stacey became a tax attorney, a grassroots organizer, and an entrepreneur, she attended the HBCU Spelman College in Atlanta and received her law degree from Yale University.
