Being able to afford care for a child, sick relative or aging parent is a pertinent issue for countless Georgians. NGP has vowed to bring care to the forefront of the political arena with campaigns designed to highlight the fact that most Georgians value access to affordable childcare, healthcare, and long term/elder care and want our public policies and politics to reflect that fact.
The New Georgia Project (NGP) is a project of Third Sector Development, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization which has been around for nearly two decades, working on Hurricane Katrina relief, education around access to health insurance, and civic engagement initiatives.
NGP’s Georgia Youth Agenda represents the voting and policy needs of Georgia's 18-25 year olds. The goal is to ensure that all young voters in each community are registered, engaged, and informed. Voter Registration for High School Students, Working Youth, and College Students is at the core of this effort.
Religious organizations play a key role in NGP’s work. Through “Loose the Chains”, we partner with churches, synagogues, mosques and other orders to host voter registration drives, disseminate information about voting rights and voter protection, and assist voters to the polls.
