Last week we hosted our Annual Legislative Conference (October 7-9). We enjoyed rich and relevant dialogue about an array of policy issues impacting Georgians. Attendees were able to hear from legislators and thought leaders about criminal justice reform, reducing health disparities, education equity, building black wealth, and other topics of note.
Moving forward, our caucus will compile what we learned to craft a legislative agenda reflective of what the people want.
Thank you to all the panelists who shared their passion and wisdom. Thank you to all the GLBC members who served as panelists, moderators, or behind the scenes. And, thank you to all who attended the conference. We hope you found it engaging and impactful.
As Chair of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus (GLBC), I am proud to represent the 65 members who serve in the Georgia General Assembly. Established in 1975, the GLBC has sought to protect the general welfare of African Americans, other people of color, and disadvantaged citizens of Georgia in matters of health and welfare, education, social and criminal justice, employment, and economic empowerment.
For more information about our organization, the members, legislative priorities, and other resources, I ask that you visit our website. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Yours in Service,
State Representative Dr. Karen Bennett (HD-94)
