Immigrant Rights Thursdays

Join us on Thursdays during the Legislative Session for an opportunity to defend Immigrant Rights at the Capitol. Each year, the Georgia General Assembly introduces harmful anti-immigrant legislation aimed at our communities. We need your help to show up and remind legislators that we are here to fight back against bills that vilify or hurt our people.

Come on out, starting Thursday January 25th to room 514 in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building at 9 am.  Contact Policy Director Aisha Yaqoob at ayaqoob@advancingjustice-atlanta.org for additional details.
