Why Women’s Day?
On Monday March 9th, the day after the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery march to protect voting rights and the day after International Women’s Day, we’re holding the first Moral Monday Women’s Day. The focus for this event is protecting Early Voting. House Bill 194 would decrease Early Voting from 21 to 12 days.
Speak Out Against HB194!
Voting is a critical issue for women in Georgia.
