Racial gap for COVID vaccinations narrowing in Georgia
AJC, J. Scott Trubey, Feb. 4, 2022
The New Georgia Project, a nonpartisan voter registration group founded nearly a decade ago by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, has added vaccinations to its outreach efforts. NGP, which often partners with faith groups, offers health screenings, COVID-19 testing and shots through partner organizations at many of its events.
These events often start the conversations about vaccination, said Brandt Lewis, director of NGP’s vaccination program, and NGP follows up with mailers and texts to help people schedule shots.
