Lucy McBath is committed to growing the clean energy economy in Georgia, where she created the Champion In The Making Legacy Foundation, which provides resources for graduating high school students.
McBath has served as the national spokesperson and Faith and Outreach leader for both Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, where she advocated for gun safety and the health and safety of children and families, following the tragic death of her son, who was shot and killed at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida. She has been an outspoken critic of the Trump Administration’s environmental rollbacks and called for the resignation of former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.
As a representative, she will fight for clean air and clean water for all communities, support growing Georgia’s clean energy economy, and addressing the climate crisis. She will oppose offshore drilling in public waters and stand up to attacks on science.
McBath joins the U.S. House after defeating Representative Karen Handel, who earned a lifetime score of 0% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“I have a deep respect and appreciation for our environment. Some of my fondest memories growing up come from taking long walks through nature with my father. In Georgia, it is imperative that we fight hard for conservation from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to the Savannah River. I plan to do all that I can to build a new clean energy infrastructure and preserve our public spaces.”
