Abrams, minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017, made headlines last year by becoming the first black female gubernatorial nominee of a major U.S. political party when she ran for governor of Georgia. In February, Abrams delivered the nationally televised Democratic response to the State of the Union address.
Considered by many to be a rising star in the Democratic Party, Abrams will discuss her experiences on the campaign trail and her current grassroots efforts around voting rights in America.
