About Us

Presbyterians for a Better Georgia


We are a partnership of Presbyterian Church (USA) congregations.

We support public policy to serve our most vulnerable neighbors. 

We accomplish our mission by...
  • Partnering with a Public Policy Advocate who works on behalf of the Partnership to influence legislation at the Georgia statehouse, and who supports and equips members of local churches to be effective policy advocates.

  • Congregational Training and Campaigns: PBG helps its member congregations with effective advocacy campaigns important to their social mission.

  • Organizing Educational Events: Volunteers from PBG member congregations host nonpartisan annual events, open to the public, to educate and inform Georgians about critical issues, meet legislators who are people of faith, and engage in conversation about the intersection of faith and politics.
