The nation’s only political action committee dedicated to electing Black women is celebrating the advancement of seven endorsed candidates in this week’s primary elections, including three in Georgia.

Glynda Carr, CEO of Higher Heights for America PAC, released a statement lauding the victories of Stacey Abrams, Nikema Williams and Lucy McBath, saying, “I cannot begin to describe the excitement of watching modern day voting rights icon Stacey Abrams advance on her path to become the country’s first Black female governor. It is an equally proud moment to see Lucy McBath and Nikema Williams move toward their re-election to the U.S House of Representatives in Georgia.”

Carr added: “As we continue to face unprecedented attacks on our voting and reproductive rights while experiencing trauma due to a lack of action on common sense gun reform, Black women provide the critical perspective necessary to champion the real progress that our voters expect.” higherheightsforamericapac.org
