Support an Equity Package to Combat Poverty

We recognize that when the most disenfranchised of our community succeed, our entire community succeeds. Given the persistent poverty gap that exists across residents living in Athens-Clarke County, we will support the effort to pass a local Equity Package that utilizes public-private partnerships to assist marginalized residents bridge the gap of challenges created by systemic poverty. The equity package will include key programmatic elements and initiatives implemented through public-private partnerships to improve the overall standard of living and opportunity for advancement for historically marginalized residents of Athens Clarke-County.
