Last spring, Stacey Abrams—one of the nation's leaders in voting rights whose work ahead of the 2020 election influenced record voter turnout in Georgia and beyond—joined NAA20 Reimagined Virtual Convention.

In the interview with Gina Warner, NAA President, Abrams shared her commitment to and support for young people, families, communities, the valuable work of our profession, and a reminder that we each have a voice that deserves to be heard.

As this year ends and we enter 2021, look for opportunities use your voice and connect afterschool to other priorities of your elected officials. While the 2020 election may be over, the campaign for support of afterschool and afterschool professionals continues!
