Nicole Robinson

Political Director
Fair Fight Action

Nicole Robinson is a political nerd, a passionate advocate for change, and a proud Georgian, guided by her desire to build political power for marginalized communities in the South. Nicole got her start in politics when she served as the first Black woman Bill Reader in the history of the Georgia State Senate. During this time, Nicole saw first hand the harms done to Georgians, particularly Black and brown Georgians, at the state level. This experience motivated Nicole to focus on creating change at the state level.

Currently, Nicole is the Political and Research Director at Fair Fight Action, a voting rights organization based in Georgia. In her current role, Nicole advocates for free and fair elections at the local, state, and national level. In her time at Fair Fight Action, Nicole has helped to stop a variety of anti-democratic bills and proposals in the Georgia State Legislature and at the county level. She has also had the privilege of working with elected officials and community leaders to expand voter access across the state of Georgia.

Prior to joining Fair Fight Action, Nicole served as a policy analyst for the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia where she advocated for criminal legal system reform, First Amendment rights, and voting rights. Prior to this, through her work on political campaigns and at different nonprofit organizations, Nicole worked to recruit, support, and elect progressive candidates at the local and state level in Georgia.

In her free time, Nicole enjoys traveling, hiking, and reading. Nicole’s greatest passion is being a dog mom to her fur baby, Flash, and providing him with a life full of fun, adventure, and love.
