Stephon Ferguson has devoted his life to public service and to bringing people together. As a former United States Army Sergeant, minister, inspirational speaker, journalist, and author, his breadth of experience in communication and leadership has propelled him to great success in his community. From military troops to Georgia’s churches, radio stations to businesses, Ferguson has built a strong track record as a passionate and logical leader with the skills and abilities to unite people beyond their differences.

Ferguson is famously known for his impeccable and evocative motivational renditions of Dr. King's speeches and sermons.  From the pulpit of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta to the Teatro Lope de Vega in Madrid, Spain, Ferguson has invoked consciousness, tears, and joy from the hearts of the crowds he draws, as he speaks to the conscience of people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds.

Ferguson's mission has been to continue the legacy of Dr. King. He does so by not only performing King's words but by educating his community about King’s philosophy of love, nonviolence, peace, and unity to bring about positive change. Ferguson reminds us all with his spirit and love of people that The Dream Lives.

To further extend King’s mission, Ferguson is lending his passion, heart, and service to the people as a candidate for Atlanta City Council - District 2, comprising of the Martin Luther King Historic District, Sweet Auburn, Old Fourth Ward, Atlantic Station, Castleberry Hill, Downtown, Home Park, Inman Park, the Marietta Artery, Midtown, and Poncey-Highland neighborhoods.

A professional in mass communications and broadcasting for over 20 years and an inspiring motivational speaker, Ferguson’s rare ability to connect with people speaks for itself. With a diverse oratory talent and enhanced training from the world's leading speakers such as Les Brown and John Maxwell, Ferguson specializes in self-empowerment, diversity, unity, and helping others discover their true worth.

Ferguson is running as an action-oriented optimist, skilled in uniting people past barriers of politics, race, religion, gender, or socioeconomic status.  He believes the key to Atlanta’s success is creating an economy that gives every person in every part of the district the opportunity to achieve. That means building the best workforce, promoting fiscal responsibility and efficiency in our government, and investing in growing industries like technology, research, and clean green energy.

Ferguson has a strong vision for Atlanta that will ensure prosperity, diversity, and exceptionalism for years to come. The first step is to boost our economy. He believes strongly that investing in a skilled labor force will allow us to reap the rewards of efficiency and success. Atlanta is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country, and that means we need to develop better housing opportunities for the millions of Americans who are drawn to our great state, as well as take care of the families that have spent their whole lives here. Atlanta is getting safer by the day, but Ferguson wants to take a bigger leap to make it the safest city in America. This can only be done by ensuring police departments are representative of the people they protect as well as making sure laws are just and fair to those they aim to protect. To further improve the city’s conditions, Ferguson will use his communications experience to collaborate with local business and civic leaders to establish Atlanta as a leader in public safety.

Stephon Ferguson is a proud attendee of the public school system, a graduate of the United States Military Academy of Health Science in San Antonio, Texas, a holder of Associate’s degrees in theater and film at Georgia Perimeter College and Georgia State University, respectively, and a current candidate for a Master of Divinity from Morehouse School of Religion - ITC

Stephon has a strong commitment to his family and community. He is the proud father of a beautiful daughter, Iyanna, who is currently a student at Clark Atlanta University. He is an ordained minister at Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church. Above all, Stephon Ferguson is a man of God.  His experience as a bridge-builder and his reputation for uplifting the people and communities around him make him the much-needed leader to continue Atlanta’s growth by revitalizing its economy and restoring balance to the government.
