Committees and Caucuses
After the death of her son, Jordan, Rep. McBath took a leading role in advocating for common sense gun safety measures. The Congresswoman spoke with local, state, and federal elected officials about the need for safer gun laws. Her experience in gun safety advocacy leads her work on the House Judiciary Committee. In her time on the Committee, they held the first Congressional hearing on gun violence in nearly a decade, and she has worked to advance legislation including H.R. 1, the For the People Act, as well as H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Bill. She will continue to work on the committee to advance gun safety legislation, to protect legislation on civil rights, campaign finance reform, and other issues that the people of Georgia’s 6th face.
The Congresswoman continues her previous work around strengthening our education system and protecting American workers on the Committee on Education and Labor. For several years Congresswoman McBath ran a fully functioning 501 (c) (3) to help students who would ordinarily fall through the cracks get access to a quality education. Her organization also partnered with local labor unions to help students understand their opportunities after high school. The Congresswoman works on the committee as a tireless advocate for improving our education system and enacting protections for workers. She’s working to ensure that the Georgia workforce has the skills necessary to compete in a global economy.
Congresswoman McBath knows firsthand how gun violence permanently alters lives and tears families apart. She has traveled throughout the Sixth District and to speak with families who have lost a loved one to gun violence, parents who know that active shooter drills should not be a necessity to keep our kids safe, and constituents who demand that their government do better. The Congresswoman serves as a Vice Chair on the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, and she will continue pursuing solutions to make our country safer.
