Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America:
Stacey Abrams made history with her historic 2018 campaign for Governor of Georgia, a race she narrowly lost to a Trump-supporting opponent who engaged in stunning levels of voter suppression.
And this Tuesday, February 5th, she’s about to make history again — by becoming the first Black woman to deliver the Democratic response to the president’s State of the Union.
This is a momentous opportunity to celebrate Stacey and show both Republicans and Democrats that we believe in her progressive vision for our country.
A young, progressive, Black woman and vocal advocate of equality, Stacey is the future of the Democratic Party. We have no doubt she’ll give a bold, inspiring rebuttal to whatever ugly lies and fear-mongering Trump spews in his statement to the nation.
Stacey has already used her platform to combat voter suppression and expand voting rights, and she's just getting started. We cannot wait to see her address the entire country and counter Trump’s destructive agenda with a transformative vision of change that will lift up each and every American.
