Stacey Abrams-led group is drowning in debt and laying off staff

A voting rights group founded by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is drastically cutting back and laying off staff amid significant debt as contributions fall.

Fair Fight was started in 2018 to advocate less restrictive voting laws, particularly in the court system.

The group’s previous CEO, Lauren Groh-Wargo, who left to manage Abrams’s second bid for governor in 2022, is coming back on an interim basis to carry out the sweeping layoffs necessary. The organization will be cutting 20 employees, which adds up to 75% of its staff.

Fair Fight is indebted $2.5 million and has just $1.9 million in available cash, according to Groh-Wargo. Only a few years ago, between 2018 and 2021, the group raised a reported $100 million.
