What is ProGeorgia?
ProGeorgia is Georgia’s non-profit civic engagement table. It is a new way to create a state we can be proud of. We strive to become a state that takes care of its citizens and our beautiful natural resources. ProGeorgia brings together the power of existing non-profit groups to work in a more strategic way, with new tools and technology, to change the policies of our state. ProGeorgia is building infrastructure by supporting, connecting, and coordinating civic participation efforts of our non-profit member groups. And ProGeorgia is implementing ways to win policy and electoral battles for progressive social change.
What does ProGeorgia Do?
Nonpartisan 501(c)3 non-profit organizations have an integral role to play in advancing civic engagement. A balanced, efficient landscape that supports and connects grassroots organizations must have its own distinct nonpartisan support system. ProGeorgia coordinates the civic engagement efforts of member organizations in the following areas:
- Voter Engagement. To increase the vote share of historically underrepresented and socially responsible voters in Georgia, ProGeorgia provides our member groups with critical tools, resources, and services to enhance and improve their voter contact work. These include targeting, modeling, field coordination, and collective voter guides.
- Issue Organizing. ProGeorgia seeks to grow and measure the issue environment in Georgia through such activities as setting a collective issue agenda, developing partner issue briefs, holding issues summits, and coordinating legislative advocacy so that we may more effectively advocate for policies that will create a better Georgia.
- Economies of Scale. ProGeorgia is uniquely positioned to save member groups considerable money through coordinated work and shared contracts. We also provide added value through programs and resources that benefit the work of our member groups.
