She has dedicated the last two years to combating voter suppression in Georgia and advocating for all Americans, particularly minority communities and those in lower income neighbors, to fill out the 2020 census. Her efforts are considered to be a prominent reason why the state of Georgia turned blue for the first time in a presidential election since 1992. The state also sent two Democratic senators, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, to the Senate.⁠ ⁠ ‘Abrams’ work follows in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s footsteps in the fight for equality before the law and for civil rights,’ said Norwegian lawmaker Lars Haltbrekken.⁠ ⁠ Other candidates this year include the Black Lives Matter movement, Putin opposition leader Alexey Navalny, and climate activist Greta Thunberg.⁠ ⁠ #staceyabrams #nobelpeaceprize #fairfight
