Our organization, Georgia Advancing Communities Together, Inc. (Georgia ACT) is actively trying to create solutions and solve the problems that our community is facing. However, our efforts to engage and advocate on affordable housing, as well as equipping us with the technology and resources to continuously provide support to our communities will not reach maximum effectiveness unless we have the support from our local communities. Each year, we host a number of networking events, training events, educational workshops and fundraiser events in the State of Georgia. Our main goal to attract more mission driven volunteers, which would love to utilize their educational skills or work-related skills to further enhance Georgia ACT vision throughout the State of Georgia. This requires education, the formation of alliances and partnerships, the allocation of greater resources and continuously improving our public image. Georgia ACT has hosted as well as co-host several on-site voter educational forums in the urban and rural communities through the State of Georgia. Some of valued our partners are: Georgia State, NAACP, Women on the Rise, the Housing Justice League, National Low Income Housing Coalition, Wells Fargo Foundation, NeighborWorks America, Fifth Third Bank, Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation and more!
