Atlanta Changemaker Chat with Lauren Groh-Wargo, Former Stacey Abrams Campaign Manager, CEO of Fair Fight Action

We’re excited to launch Changemaker Chats in Atlanta and welcome our first speaker Lauren Groh-Wargo, Former Campaign Manager for Stacey Abrams for Governor and CEO of Fair Fight Action!

This month, we’ll explore strength: how do we harness it to find our passions, chart our careers, and help others? In discussion with Lauren Groh-Wargo, we’ll define what strength means to her, and how she uses her strength to fight for free and fair elections.

About Lauren

Lauren Groh-Wargo is a top political strategist, executive, and fighter for economic justice, and she is a key leader in shaping the emerging Democratic wave in the South. Most recently, Lauren served as the campaign manager for Stacey Abrams for Governor, a campaign that broke state records for fundraising and turnout and placed the first African American woman on the ballot for governor for a major party in U.S. history. Spurred by the voting irregularities in Georgia and across the country, Lauren is now the CEO of Fair Fight Action, which focuses on electoral integrity and reform.

An organizer at heart, Lauren has led and advised campaigns, progressive organizations and leaders over the past sixteen years in New York, Ohio, Connecticut, Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida, Arizona, Virginia and Georgia. In her work, she has helped pass ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage, and she has supported emerging political leaders across the South and around the country to build their organizations and their leadership.

Changemaker Chats is a volunteer-led organization, and we rely on donations from our sponsors and attendees to continue to offer our events to women in Atlanta and across the globe. If cost is ever a barrier, please contact us at helloatlanta@changemakerchat.com. Please also reach out if you are interested in learning more about volunteering.
