Lucy is the mother of Jordan Davis, who was shot and killed at a gas station in Jacksonville, Fla. in 2012 by a man objecting to the music he was playing in his car. Losing her son in such a senseless way has fueled her lifelong commitment to community activism and the importance of political engagement. Early on, McBath’s sense of public service came from an extensive family background involving civil rights. She received her B.A. degree in political science from Virginia State University in 1982. Retiring after a 30-year career with Delta Air Lines, she has focused on reform that will make our communities safer and better for every American of every background. Before running for Congress, Lucy held dual roles as the national spokesperson for Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as Faith and Outreach Leader for both. Her work included testifying in state capitols and speaking with lawmakers, activists, universities and community organizers across the county. In Washington, D.C. she has testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee, lobbied members of Congress, and spoke at the White House Summit on Educational Excellence for African Americans. She served as a surrogate for the Hillary Clinton for President campaign in 2016 as one of the “Mothers of The Movement”. McBath’s work has been recognized widely. She was honored with he Chairman’s Award of the Georgia Democratic Party in 2017.
