Women in the Halls-Lobbying for a Better Standard of Living for Women
January 18, 2013 § Leave a comment
The Planned Parenthood Action Fund of Georgia has sponsored a special project called Women in the Halls, seeking to entice more women to the state Capitol during the annual legislative session (January-April). Women in the Halls holds lawmakers accountable to the women of Georgia for the decisions and policies that are made. Many of which, overlook the concerns and the disastrous affects these policies can have on women.
Every Wednesday during the legislative session Women in the Halls will join a lobby training hosted by progressive groups. Afraid that you will be too uniformed to effectively lobby? Do not fear, Women in the Halls is here. Everyone attending will be briefed on relevant legislation and how to lobby your elected officials. You will also be armed with talking points, facts sheets, and other important information you will need to convince the members of the General Assembly.
Want to get involved? Women in the Halls meets every WEDNESDAY during the legislative session at 9am in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, Room 306 which is located across the street from the Capitol on Mitchell Street. Contact Nikema.Williams@ppfa.org or 404.688.9305 ext. 310 for more details.
Together, we’ll fill the halls and fight for responsible legislation for women!
