April 27, 2018: Ga. Mom Runs for Congress and Fights Gun Violence
“Lucy McBath never wanted to become an activist.
The Georgia mom was living in a quiet, upper-middle-class cul-de-sac outside Atlanta raising her son, Jordan Davis, who planned to attend college with his friends.
But everything changed on Nov. 23, 2013, when the 17-year-old Jordan, who was seated in an SUV with his friends at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida, was fatally shot when a 47-year-old man fired 10 bullets at the vehicle.
The shooter, Michael Dunn, claimed he’d felt threatened when the group refused to turn down their car radio. Dunn, who is now serving a life sentence, was white. Jordan, who along with his three friends was unarmed, was black.”
