Georgia’s 7th Congressional District
Representative Lucy McBath is a wife, an author, and an advocate, but the most important title she will ever hold is “Jordan’s Mom.” In 2012, Lucy’s son Jordan was senselessly shot and killed at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida by a man objecting to the music Jordan was playing in his car.
After the murder of her son, she left her 30-year long career working for Delta Airlines for her second career focused on reform to make our communities safer for every single American. She began demanding that the clergy, our politicians, and other elected leaders do more to stop the senseless gun violence in America. She began working for Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action traveling throughout the country speaking and lobbying lawmakers, activists, and organizers. She ran for Congress in 2018, narrowly defeating an NRA-backed incumbent in the seat once held by Newt Gingrich.
In Congress, she worked on the passage of numerous pieces of legislation through the House, including universal background checks for all gun sales and Red Flag Laws to limit access to firearms for those who are potentially dangerous. She serves on the Judiciary Committee, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and is a member of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus and the Equality Caucus.
