Legislative Advocacy Program

Our advocacy program focuses on achieving local and state level policies to bring about reproductive justice in Georgia. We achieve this through the work of a full-time lobbyist and by empowering Georgians to advocate with their government.

What We Do

Our primary program activities include:

We have a full-time lobbyist at the state Capitol to educate elected officials on the issues, fight against harmful bills, and promote good ones.

We work hard to make the Capitol accessible to everyone by sending out email alerts for important developments and hosting advocacy days monthly during the legislative session. On advocacy days, we bring a group of volunteers to the state Capitol, provide a short lobbying training, and then lead the group in speaking with their elected officials about current legislation.

 We offer training and workshops on current laws relevant to reproductive justice, the legislative process, and legislative advocacy. These trainings are available upon request.

The most powerful position in our government is in the voting booth! We train our volunteers to register new voters, canvass in our communities, and connect with voters via phone to make sure folks feel informed and empowered at the polls – Every Election!
