Pride to the Capitol: HRC in Georgia



In response to baseless legislative attacks by anti-equality forces, we, the undersigned organizations, invite you to join us in taking our Pride to the Capitol! We invite you to bring your truth, your joy and your full selves as we advocate for our community. We will be hosting a training to walk through the process of speaking with your lawmakers, what bills are currently under negotiation and what opportunities we have to pass legislation that strengthens the LGBTQ+ community and our allies.


Georgia is experiencing a surge in anti-LGBTQ+ bills during this legislative session that are aimed at removing queer people from public life. LGBTQ+ Georgians deserve to access health care, a full education, economic opportunity and their First Amendment rights to expression and association. This is a watershed moment that calls us to respond in unity, in love for each other and in defense of our liberties to be exactly who we are.


The formal portion of the Lobby Day will be from 8AM-2PM, but we will be present until late in the evening given the nature of the legislative session - please feel free to join us at any time on February 27th, even if you are unable to join us in the formal timeframe.

Breakfast will be provided and meals will be made available throughout the day. Transportation assistance is available upon request if anyone is in need.
