U.S. Voting Rights Activist Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Stacey Abrams was nominated for her work to promote nonviolent change through voting

U.S. voting rights activist and Democratic Party politician Stacey Abrams has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for her work to promote nonviolent change via the ballot box, a Norwegian lawmaker said on Monday.

Abrams, whose work was credited with boosting voter turnout last year, helping Joe Biden win the U.S. presidency, joins a long list of nominees, including former President Donald Trump.
