Stacey Abrams is an American political leader, voting rights activist, entrepreneur, and NY Times bestselling author. Abrams also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives in 2007 until 2017 (having served as minority leader in 2011 until 2017).
This year, the world will be learning more of the intimate side of Stacy Abrams as she launches a national speaking tour, A Conversation with Stacey Abrams. The tour will launch in San Antonio at The Tobin Center’s H-E-B Performance Hall on September 20, 2021, before heading on to eleven other US cities.
Stacey Abrams will present an evening of candid conversation and insights on politics, leadership, entrepreneurship, social justice, and being a true voice for change. Designed around worldwide and national events, as well as questions from the audience and community, this conversation with Stacey Abrams aims to inform and empower.
Abrams’ New York Times bestselling book Lead from the Outside: How to Build Your Future and Make Real Change, is a personal and empowering blueprint for outsiders who seek to become the ones in charge. From her experiences launching a company to building Georgia into a premier battleground state, Abrams illuminates that finding what you want to fight for is as critical as knowing how to turn thought into action. Our Time is Now is a blueprint to end voter suppression and chronicles a chilling account of how the right to vote and the principles of democracy have been and continue to be under attack. Abrams is also the author of the fictional political thriller While Justice Sleeps.
Dedicated to civic engagement, Abrams has founded multiple organizations devoted to voting rights, training and hiring young people of color, and tackling social issues at both the state and national levels. She is the 2021 recipient of the inaugural Social Justice Impact Award from the NAACP Image Awards.
