The past year has been a whirlwind for state Sen. Nikema Williams.

 

In November, she was re-elected to her post in Atlanta-based Senate District 39.

 

But later that month, she and 14 others were arrested during a protest in the Capitol rotunda demanding that every vote be counted in the gubernatorial race between Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams.
