WORKING TO REPRESENT ALL OF GEORGIA
Remaining Vigilant and Focused We are less than 50 days away from the general election scheduled for November 3, 2020. If you have not done so, please register to vote. October 5 is the final date to register for the upcoming presidential election.
As well, make sure to complete and submit a 2020 Census form. Currently, our response rate is second-worst in the nation. Remaining silent on the census prevents our schools, hospitals, cities, and communities from getting the federal funding it deserves.
Last, we are glad to announce our Second Annual Legislative Conference to be held virtually from October 7-9. It is an opportunity to hear from elected officials, thought leaders, activists, and academics about issues impacting our community. More importantly, it provides rich content to develop a 2021 legislative agenda that reflects your concerns. Click on the image below to register.
The GLBC 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.
