On January 6th, GJP hosted its 2021 Legislative Kickoff Event virtually. The event was attended by 114 people; many of whom were from local organizations and community organizers who’ve helped us with our past policy initiatives.
GJP staff members were joined by Marilynn Winn from Women on the Rise to lead a discussion about our policy priorities for the year and explain how folks in the community can engage their state representatives to push the agenda forward.
GJP’s 2021 policy agenda is focused on 3 areas to reduce reentry barriers and the number of Georgians under correctional control (Read more about our policy agenda here).
-Driver’s License Suspensions
-Child support reform for low-income families
