At this meeting on Sunday, December 15th we will be organizing into working committees where community members will be able to immediately step into action. The Georgia General Assembly legislative session begins on Monday, January 13th, so overdrive is the gear we will be putting into play here. The legislative session is only 40 days long; there is not much time to get a critical vote of approval from Georgia’s legislators. GLASS needs and welcomes your help!
