Ahead of the Georgia House Vote, Faith Leaders Unite to Demand a Moral Budget

Atlanta, Georgia — On Tuesday, March 2nd at 2:00 p.m., faith leaders from across the state of Georgia, in partnership with the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, will hold a virtual press conference to demand Georgia representatives vote for a moral budget that supports Georgia families. 

Georgia lawmakers must make sure families that have been impacted by cuts to critical programs, like our public schools, will get the support they need. Speakers will discuss the need for restored social safety net programs, and some of the proposals that our state legislators need to consider as they vote this week.
