Congresswoman Nikema Williams, a fierce advocate for social justice, women, and families, proudly upholds the legacy of her predecessor, Congressman John Lewis, by fighting to end voter suppression and expand fair access to the ballot.
She was elected as Freshman Class President for the 117th Congress and sits with several caucuses. Prior to her election to Congress, she served in the Georgia State Senate. Her honors include Georgia Trend magazine’s 100 Most Influential Georgians and Forty under Forty, among many others.
Rep. Williams attended Talladega College in Talladega, Alabama – where she was initiated into Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. She and her husband, Leslie Small, live in Atlanta with their son, Carter.
