At Georgia STAND-UP, our legislative advocacy spans all levels of government, including municipal, county, state, and federal. We organize town halls across Georgia to facilitate direct dialogue between community members and their representatives, enhancing mutual understanding and accountability. Additionally, we form coalitions with community, faith-based, and labor groups to unify our voice and strengthen our impact.

Our engagement also includes roundtable discussions where diverse stakeholders collaborate on strategic solutions to pressing issues. These discussions, combined with meetings with elected officials, allow us to present detailed data, real-life stories, and expert analyses, which are crucial in shaping informed legislation.


Furthermore, we leverage social media to broaden our reach and mobilize support, ensuring our advocacy efforts and community voices have a lasting impact.
