Description

On Monday, June 25, join Flippable and Future Now Fund for an exciting discussion with three of the most dynamic leaders in state politics: Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and Virginia Delegates Elizabeth Guzman and Kathy Tran.

Hear about Abrams’ vision for Georgia, learn about how legislative victories in Virginia set the stage for Medicaid expansion, and spend time with three amazing women spearheading the movement for a fairer, more inclusive democracy.


Stacey Abrams knows better than most that good government starts at the state level. She was a leader in the Georgia House, and now she is carrying that leadership straight to the Georgia Governor’s Mansion. Abrams made history last month, becoming the first black woman to win a major party’s nomination for Governor (by a whopping 50-point margin!). As House Minority Leader, she worked tirelessly to build a strong bench of inspiring representatives. She founded the New Georgia Project, registering over 200,000 voters of color. She’s now running to build a thriving and diverse economy in every part of the state, provide high-quality affordable childcare and universal pre-K, expand Medicaid, reform the state’s criminal justice system, and protect the right to vote. We’re thrilled to hear her share her bold vision for Georgia and our country.


Delegates Elizabeth Guzman and Kathy Tran led an unprecedented wave in Virginia in 2017, changing the balance of power in the state. Last month, Guzman and Tran cast deciding votes to expand Medicaid in Virginia, providing access to healthcare to nearly 400,000 Virginians.

A Peruvian-American immigrant and social worker, Elizabeth Guzman became the first Latina to serve in Virginia’s House of Delegates (along with fellow Delegate Hala Ayala). Since entering office, she has introduced bills to increase pre-K funding and strengthen background checks. A rising leader in the Democratic party, Guzman was tapped to deliver the Spanish-language response to the 2018 State of the Union address.

At just seven months old, Kathy Tran came to the United States as a refugee of the Vietnam War. After serving in the U.S. Department of Labor for 12 years, Tran ran successfully for Virginia’s House of Delegates, becoming one of the first Asian-American women elected to the position. Tran has introduced bills to strengthen worker protections and establish an Office of Immigrant Assistance in the Department of Social Services.
