Nikema Williams

Congresswoman Nikema Williams has been a fierce advocate for social justice, women and families throughout her political and professional career. As the first Black woman elected to serve Georgia’s 5th District in 2020, Congresswoman Williams continues to uplift the legacy of her mentor and predecessor Congressman John Lewis by fighting to prevent voter suppression and expand free and fair access to the ballot box.

She currently sits on the exclusive House Financial Services Committee. In addition to serving as Vice Chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus and co-chairing the Congressional Endometriosis Caucus, she is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, Congressional Progressive Caucus, Voting Rights Caucus, LBGTQ+ Equality Caucus and the HBCU Caucus.
