2018 Session Achieves Key Groundwork To Enact Georgia Work Credit in 2019

The 2018 state legislative session ended on March 29th but not before advocates established critically important groundwork to educate and build support for a Georgia Work Credit. During the 2018 legislative session we: 

  • Hosted the first ever Georgia Work Credit lobby day, with attendees coming together to learn, share and educate lawmakers on the issue.
  • Grew the chorus of voices calling for a Georgia Work Credit including engaging the Junior League, Buckhead Christian Ministries, Urban League of Greater Atlanta, Working Women 9 to 5 and others.
  • Reminded lawmakers that the passage of a massive tax cut package failed to include a Georgia Work Credit through salient earned media from The Center for Working Families and Step Up Savannah.
  • Supported a cohort of policy fellows from the Georgia Women’s Policy Institute who raised the issue with lawmakers and engaged communities across the state.
  • Partnered with Prosperity Now and Georgia Watch to lift up the Georgia Work Credit at the Georgia Economic Opportunity Summit.
