Stacey Abrams took her campaign for governor – and her new book on leadership – to the LGBTQ-owned feminist store Charis Books & More on Wednesday.
The appearance comes as Abrams – an attorney and former state lawmaker – is locked in a primary battle with Stacey Abrams for the Democratic nomination for governor. The primary is May 22, though early voting opened last week.
Abrams has stumped for LGBTQ votes throughout her campaign, including an appearance at the 31st Annual HRC Atlanta Gala Dinner & Auction on Saturday. She's pledged to fight discrimination as governor and combat the state's growing HIV problem.
Last month, Georgia Equality endorsed Abrams and called her "exceptionally strong on LGBTQ issues."
On Wednesday, Abrams spoke to supporters and signed copies of "Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change." The book was released in April. Charis is the oldest and largest feminist bookstore in the South.
