Presbyterians for a Better Georgia

Presbyterians for a Better Georgia

Presbyterians for a Better Georgia is an organization of several churches within the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta which seeks to support public policy serving “…the least of these” (Matthew 25: 40). Specific state legislation focuses are common sense laws to ensure the health and safety of our youth, provide healthcare for Georgians and care for the indigent, and reduce gun violence. It is our privilege to work in coordination with Elizabeth Appley who represents PBG to communicate our concerns to the Georgia Legislature.

It is our aim in celebrating Atlanta Pride to continue advocating for the LGBTQ community to reduce stigma and call for recognition and respect of human dignity for every individual regardless of gender identification, sexuality, relationship preference or partner status.
