"I’m an immigrant to Georgia who was on public assistance, and wrongly flagged as a non-citizen voter. I worked hard to graduate from Yale Law School, then to give back by becoming a civil rights and gun violence prevention attorney, with organizations like the ACLU. As a State Rep, I’ve created resources and policies that address the day-to-day issues of our diverse community. In COVID-19 times, there are so many resources that exist, but that people have difficulty accessing. I’m trying to change that.” - Marvin
