Stacey Abrams on Families & Children

Democratic Gubernatorial Challenger (GA); 2020 Veepstakes contender

 


Family values: faith, service, education & responsibility

Growing up, my family went back and forth between lower middle class and working poor. Yet, even when they came home weary and bone-tired, my parents found a way to show us all who we could be. My librarian mother taught us to love learning. My father, a shipyard worker, put in overtime and extra shifts; and they made sure we volunteered to help others. Later, they both became United Methodist ministers, an expression of the faith that guides us.

These were our family values--faith, service, education and responsibility.

Our power and strength as Americans lives in our hard work and our belief in more. My family understood firsthand that while success is not guaranteed, we live in a nation where opportunity is possible. But we do not succeed alone--in these United States, when times are tough, we can persevere because our friends and neighbors will come for us.

Learning begins at birth

We must start our commitment to education with high-quality, affordable childcare. We offer tax credits and subsidies to working parents to take care of our youngest citizens. Quality early care has been tied to school readiness, graduation rates, reading proficiency, and college-going rates. I'm committed to expanding access to pre-k to three year-olds.

We must help our most vulnerable citizens

As a state, we must deliver critical services to those who have physical, intellectual, and developmental disabilities as well as mental illness. As Minority Leader, Stacey has co-sponsored legislation to support our most vulnerable residents, from kinship care legislation to expanding legal protections for seniors. As Governor, Stacey will continue to advocate for policies and funds to serve these communities.
