It’s Crossover Day at the Capitol and we want to support our legislators who have been hard at work this session. Our meeting on March 7th will take place at the Coverdell Legislative Office Building room 310 at 7:00pm. Coverdell is located at 18 Capitol Square SW, Atlanta, GA and is directly across the street from the Capitol. After the meeting, we can go across the street the Gold Dome and observe proceedings from the gallery.
Parking is very limited downtown. Carpooling, MARTA, and ride shares like Lyft and Uber are strongly suggested. The nearest MARTA station is the Georgia State Station.
Please make sure to bring your ID to get through security.
Tonight, we held elections for the State Committee. Congratulations to everyone who will be representing DeKalb County!

The Atlanta Pride Parade is happening on October 14th. We’re lining up on West Peachtree near the Civic Center Marta Station near Ivan Allen. We will be there at 9:30am to secure our spot in Section D. If you get there early, maybe you can do some canvassing in the crowd. 🙂 If you are attending, please make sure you’re there by 11:30 because the parade steps off at noon sharp.
We’re going to have t shirts for sale. If you want to secure yours, place an order by this Friday, September 28th. You can use this form. http://goo.gl/HvRFLM
