SAVANNAH, Ga (WSAV) – Former Georgia Representative and former candidate for Georgia governor, Stacey Abrams made stops in Statesboro and Pooler Tuesday to persuade people to register to vote.

Abrams first spoke at Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center on the Statesboro campus. Later on that evening, Abrams appeared at the National Association of Letter Carriers in Pooler for a Fair Fight event. Fair Fight is a political action committee.

Abrams highlighted the importance of registering and exercising the right to vote, fighting voter suppression and promote the work Fair Fight PAC is doing in Georgia and across the nation.

”I ask of you we’ve got a lot of work to do in Georgia. We have seen that when our values are not valued, and when our voices are turned away at the poll and the work we do does not become recognized by people of power they made decisions that do not benefit us,” Abrams told the Pooler crowd.
