Local Macon Advocacy Group Hosts Training Event

GBPI joined several groups including the New Georgia Project (NGP), WIC and the Macon Bibb County Economic Opportunity Council to host an advocacy training to help attendees learn about how to tell their stories and advocate for improved health care and child care for their communities.

This coalition of organizations wants to ensure that every person in Macon is well equipped to create change at the state and local level to improve their quality. Some issues discussed included a lack of access to healthcare, specifically obstetrics, and the challenge to locate affordable childcare.
