Congresswoman Lucy McBath is a mother, a wife, an
author and an activist, but the most important title she
will ever hold is Jordan’s Mom. McBath spent 30 years
working for Delta Airlines as a flight attendant until the
death of her 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, in 2012.
Jordan was shot and killed in what became known as the
“Loud Music Shooting.” After his death, McBath turned to
activism. She has dedicated her life to preventing other
families from experiencing the same tragedy that she did.
McBath held dual roles as the national spokesperson for
Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, as
well as faith and outreach leader for both. After years of
advocating to local, state, and federal legislators, the
Congresswoman decided to run for office herself. She
decided to run for the Georgia State House in 2017, but
after the Parkland shooting she knew she had to step up and run for Congress.
In addition to her experiences with gun violence, the Congresswoman was inspired to run for
Congress because she is a two-time breast cancer survivor. She knows the importance of
covering those with preexisting conditions and increasing accessibility to quality and affordable
health care. The Congresswoman proudly represents Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District.
