Congresswoman Lucy McBath was first called to advocacy after the death of her son, Jordan Davis. He was murdered in what became known as the “Loud Music Shooting” in 2012. After the loss of her son, Congresswoman McBath began demanding more from our leaders, which eventually led her to run for Congress. She serves as Vice Chair of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, and one of her first legislative actions was co-sponsoring H.R 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives in February. The legislation would enact universal background checks.
