The Georgia STAND-UP Alliance

With over 160 organizational members, the Georgia STAND-UP Alliance is comprised of leaders representing community, faith, academic, and labor organizations that work together on various projects to affect change within the communities the organization serves. Facilitated by Georgia STAND-UP staff, Alliance meetings include networking and information, idea and resource sharing among members. As a group, the Alliance researches various community projects, discusses options and opportunities and makes recommendations for the benefit of a community.
