About McBath:

Lucy McBath left her 30-year long career working for Delta Airlines for her second career focused on reform to make our communities safer for every single American. After the shooting death of her son Jordan in 2012, McBath began demanding that the clergy, politicians, and elected leaders do more to stop the gun violence. She began working for Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action traveling throughout the country speaking and lobbying lawmakers, activists, and organizers. 

After the tragic shooting in Parkland, Fla., McBath decided she would run for office herself. She ran against an NRA-backed incumbent, and won. McBath holds the seat once held by Newt Gingrich.

McBath’s work in Congress has been focused on working across the aisle and passing laws to help our children and families. She worked on legislation which has been passed through the House, including universal background checks for all gun sales and Red Flag Laws to limit access to firearms for those who are potentially dangerous. She has also sponsored legislation protecting our veterans which was signed into law. 

Prior to serving in Congress, she created the “Champion in the Making Legacy Foundation,” which provides charitable and educational assistance to graduating high school students attending traditional and technical colleges. McBath received her B.A. in political science from Virginia State University in 1982. McBath is married and she and her husband own a dog named Harley, and McBath enjoys motorcycles.
