More than 100 members of The Links, Inc. from 15 Georgia chapters located in Albany, Athens, Atlanta Cluster (6 chapters), Augusta, Brunswick, Columbus, Fort Valley, La- Grange, Macon and Savannah will participate in Links Day at the Capitol Friday, March 21, 2014 in the Sloppy Floyd Building, Empire Room 200 Piedmont Ave. NE, 20th Floor – West Tower Atlanta, GA 30334 .

Georgia Legislators and Link members Senator Freddie Powell Sims (Albany) and Representative Carolyn Hughley (Columbus) will serve as honorary chairs of the event. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, State Rep. Stacey Abrams, head of Georgia Legislative Black Caucus Representative Dee Dawkins-Haigler and Links, Inc. Southern Area Director Eneid Francis will address the members.

Link members will convene upon the state capitol to urge legislators to support (SB) 295 and defeat (HB) 990 which creates an additional impediment to Medicaid expansion as they call for the Governor’s reconsideration of his decision to forgo participation in Medicaid Expansion. They will also encourage the passage of (HB) 923 Georgia Child Fatality Review Panel, which calls attention to the improvement of protecting the health, safety and well-being of children. The Links will host a forum that will include two panel discussions in support of these bills.
