Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Ga.) is the mother of Jordan Davis. In 2012, Davis was mercilessly gunned down after a crazed white man shot into a car full of teens who were playing loud music outside of a gas station and later used the National Rifle Association-authored “stand your ground” defense.

The death of her 17-year-old son pushed McBath to run for Congress. She didn’t choose this life; unfortunately, tragedy forced McBath to switch careers and stand on a platform against gun violence to prevent another parent from ever experiencing what she’s felt.
