Stacey Abrams is leading the debate on some of the most important political issues in 2019


The historic gubernatorial candidate will speak at Code Conference 2019 about her fight for voters’ rights.

By Shirin Ghaffary Jun 10, 2019, 8:50am EDT

Stacey Abrams made history as the first black woman to run for governor under a major party in 2018. After losing the race to her Republican opponent by one of the smallest (and most disputed) margins in years, she founded Fair Fight Action, a new voting rights organization devoted to battling voter suppression in Georgia and across the US.

We’re excited to have Abrams onstage at Recode’s Code Conference this year. Abrams and the CEO of Fair Fight Action, Lauren Groh-Wargo, will join Recode co-founder and editor-at-large Kara Swisher and Vox founder and editor-at-large Ezra Klein for a discussion starting at 6:50 pm PT on Monday, June 10.

We plan to ask Abrams about the ongoing issues she’s working on, like her opposition to film industry boycotts over Georgia’s new restrictive abortion bill, as well as her call for an end to alleged voter suppression that many said influenced the outcome of the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race. We’ll also talk to her about her own political ambitions; recently she said she is not planning a 2020 Senate run.

1. It would be amazing if she could make progress on this issue nationally.


Because even Georgia Democrats didn't care enough to vote in a Democrat in the GA SOS runoff election after Abrams lost the governors race.

I'm so embarrassed by my fellow GA Democrats for not turning out for the SOS vote.

3. The first time I heard that woman, I was impressed. After that,

every time I heard/hear her voice, I would/will stop what I was/am doing and turn to watch and listen. Little girls are already looking up to her. Adult women are looking up to her. Stacy Abrams is phenomenal.
