Stacey Abrams Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize
GEORGIA VOTING RIGHTS ACTIVIST STACEY ABRAMS HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
(CNN) – Voting rights activist Stacey Abrams has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
A socialist party politician in Norway’s Parliament nominated Abrams on the first day of Black History Month in the U.S.
The nomination praises Abrams’ work following in the footsteps of another Nobel Peace Prize winner, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The former candidate for Georgia governor and her organization “fair fight action” played a key role in turning Georgia blue in the past election.
It’s not unusual for there to be hundreds of people nominated for the honor, which is announced in October.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee which is based in Oslo, will release a short list of finalists in March.
