On June 6, the Democratic National Committee will hold its IWillVote Gala fundraising event and African American Leadership Council Summit in Atlanta at the Westin Peachtree Plaza. The IWillVote Gala celebrates the DNC’s IWillVote program, launched in 2018, that reached over 50 million voters before Election Day.

Clyburn, Stacey Abrams and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

Rollins, the Honorable Stacey Abrams, Vice President Joe Biden, the Honorable Beto O’Rourke, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Congressman John Lewis, and Congresswoman Lucy McBath.
