Representative Shannon will be discussing ways LGBTQ Georgians are living unprotected under the law in many areas of life.

She has been a consistent advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and in 2017 she came out as bisexual, making her the first bisexual legislator to serve in the Georgia General Assembly.

She is an active advocate for Reproductive Rights, Economic Justice Issues for Workers, and she is the co-founder of Her Team, a Georgia-based initiative committed to targeting, recruiting, and electing progressive women into office.

Her work has been featured in Time Magazine, Cosmo, and Elite Daily. She also published “Why it Matters to Elect Queer Black Women to Public Office” in The Brown Girl’s Guide to politics during pride month.
