I’m Nikema Williams, and I want to be your state Senator in the 39th district.
Since moving to Atlanta 15 years ago, I’ve dedicated myself to advocating for women and families of Georgia. As the Vice President of Public Policy for Planned Parenthood Southeast, I fight daily to protect every woman’s right to make her own personal health care decisions. Using the collective strength found in broad coalitions, I continue to fight daily ensuring health care is affordable and available for everyone regardless of their zip code or socioeconomic status.
I was born in Columbus and raised by my grandparents just across the Chattahoochee River, in Smiths, Alabama. They taught me to value hard work, determination, and service to one’s community.
These values led me to Talladega College, a private liberal arts Historically Black College in Talladega, Alabama, where I became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Biology.
My husband, Leslie Small, and I reside in Atlanta’s Historic Vine City neighborhood with our 2 year old son, Carter and our two rescue Yorkshire Terriers, Ginger and Belle. We are members of Central United Methodist Church.
As your Senator, I’ll work to provide everyone with the tools and opportunity to thrive, not merely survive. Growing up, I experienced firsthand the challenges that too many families face struggling to make ends meet.
Together, we’ll work to overcome these challenges.
I look forward to earning your vote and your support!
