HOW CAN PEOPLE OF FAITH BE ENGAGED IN ADVOCACY?
Are you looking for a way to advocate for our United Methodist Social Principles here in our own state of Georgia? Not sure where to start?
Trinity United Methodist Church in Downtown Atlanta is hosting a Legislative Priority Session on November 2nd. We will learn about Georgia’s legislative agenda for next year, hear your priorities, and set priorities for our collective advocacy work.
The day will start at 10am with an introduction from Paul Bolster, a former Georgia Congressman and a longtime member of Trinity. We will then hear from two of Georgia’s state legislators: David Dreyer (D) and a TBD Republican representative who will talk a little bit about Georgia’s upcoming legislative agenda and answer some of your questions.
We will then break for lunch before continuing in the afternoon with representatives from a couple of advocacy groups talking about Medicaid Expansion and Criminal Justice Reform, specifically reinstating voting rights for convicted felons. We will close the day by setting some legislative priorities that the group can advocate for during Georgia’s upcoming legislative session.
A lunch will be provided at noon and free parking is available in our parking deck with a validated ticket.
