Georgia NAACP Legislative Recap: Empowering Communities with Knowledge

Tonight, we had the privilege of hosting nearly 100 engaged and passionate community members for our Legislative Recap event, in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Georgia (@LWVGA), the Urban League of Greater Atlanta (@ULGAtl), and the ACLU of Georgia (@ACLUofGA). This gathering was not only a testament to the power of collective action but also an affirmation of our commitment to keeping Georgia's citizens informed and empowered.


Understanding the Latest Changes in Georgia Law


Our Legislative Recap was designed to break down the latest changes in Georgia law and their far-reaching impacts on our communities. With the legislative session behind us, it was imperative to shed light on the new laws and policies that will shape our state's future. Our esteemed panel of experts and advocates provided detailed insights and analysis, ensuring that every attendee left with a deeper understanding of how these changes will affect their daily lives.


Key Topics Covered:

2. Criminal Justice Reform: Updates on criminal justice policies, including sentencing reforms and policing practices, were highlighted. We focused on how these changes aim to create a more just and equitable system for all.


3. Healthcare Access: The latest developments in healthcare legislation were unpacked, with an emphasis on expanding access and addressing disparities in our communities.


4. Economic Equity: New laws affecting employment, housing, and economic opportunities were reviewed, stressing the importance of creating a fair and inclusive economy for all Georgians.
