Bio

Representative Lucy McBath is a wife, an author, and an advocate, but the most important title she will ever hold is "Jordan's Mom." On Black Friday in 2012, McBath's son, Jordan Davis, was sitting in the back seat of a friend's car at a gas station. A man pulled up next to them, complaining about the "loud music" they were playing. The man pulled out a gun and fired 10 shots into the car, hitting Jordan three times, and killing him.

After Jordan's death, McBath dedicated her life to preventing other families from experiencing the same pain she did.

McBath left her 30-year career as a flight attendant at Delta Airlines to become the National Spokesperson and Faith and Outreach Leader for Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

In 2017, after the mass shooting that killed 17 people at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, McBath knew she had to stand up and run for Congress.

Since taking her oath of office in January of 2019, McBath has sought bipartisan solutions to end gun violence, uplift small business and our economy, protect and serve our nation's veterans, and lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs.

A two-time breast cancer survivor, Representative McBath knows how important it is to protect those with pre-existing conditions and ensure all Americans have access to quality, affordable care. McBath partnered with Senator Warnock to introduce a bill that would cap insulin costs at $35 a month for seniors on Medicare. The legislation was signed into law by the President and went into effect in 2023.

McBath has supported H.R. 1425, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act, a bipartisan bill to ensure that everyone with preexisting conditions is covered. McBath also introduced legislation requiring Medicare to cover hearing aids, and her bill was included in H.R. 3, the Lower Drug Costs Now Act. This landmark, bipartisan legislation would lower the cost of medication, stop big pharmaceutical companies from ripping off families, and reinvest billions in innovation and the search for new cures and treatments.

McBath has been instrumental in passing Red Flag laws as part of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Law so that loved ones and law enforcement have more tools to get guns out of the hands of those who may pose a threat to themselves or others. For the first time in over two decades, McBath helped procure funding to study gun violence as a public health epidemic.

In August of 2019, McBath's bill, the HAVEN Act, which protects veterans in need, was signed into law by President Trump. The Washington Post called this bipartisan piece of legislation the "biggest bill passed" by a freshman this Congress. She has been called "an effective lawmaker" during her first year in Congress, and "one of the House Democratic Caucus' most important voices." To protect the education of our children, five measures led by McBath were included in the landmark Higher Education Act, a bill to improve the quality of education, lower the cost of college, and expand opportunity for students across America.

McBath also led bipartisan legislation in December of 2019 to modernize data collection practices and improve epidemic preparedness at the Centers for Disease Control. In March 2020, she secured the $500 million she requested as part of the COVID-19 relief package.
