Lucia “Lucy” McBath is a mother, wife, businesswoman, and activist for social justice. After a 30-year career with Delta Air Lines, her second career has focused on reform that will make our communities safer and better for every American of every background. Lucy’s passion for public service was awakened by her family’s tragedy in 2012. She is the mother of Jordan Davis, who was shot and killed at a gas station in Jacksonville, FL, that year by a man objecting to the music he was playing in his car. The shooter used Florida’s stand-your-ground law as his defense. He was not found guilty of murder in his first trial. In an October 2014 retrial, the shooter was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.As a two-time breast cancer survivor and daughter of two medical professionals, Lucy understands the importance of quality, affordable health care. She is also focused on bringing high-paying jobs to the Atlanta Metro area, protecting a woman’s right to chose, and protecting our environment. Lucy received her B.A. degree in political science from Virginia State University in 1982.
