In the immediate aftermath of her hotly contested defeat to Republican (and Georgia's then-secretary of state) Brian Kemp, Abrams launched Fair Fight Action, and together with another advocacy group, filed a federal lawsuit seeking to overhaul Georgia's election system on the grounds that the current system impaired citizens' ability to vote in the 2018 gubernatorial election, and thus deprived them of their constitutional rights guaranteed under the First, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments.

Lunch will be served in the Club's Holeman Lounge at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for National Press Club members (members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-member tickets.

For all ticketing-related questions, please email reservations@press.org. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase.

The deadline for submitting questions in advance is 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
