Advocating for Marijuana Law Reform

Georgia C.A.R.E. Project

We are a leader in marijuana law reform in the state of Georgia. Our public policy reports are helpful in educating lawmakers, media, and the public. We engage in a number of activities to advance reform:

Lobbying: Director James Bell is a voice for marijuana law reform and lobbies for changes in state and local laws. He works with legislators on policy matters and testifies at legislative hearings. Help support our our 40 Days campaign to ensure we’re present every day of the legislative session.

City by City Initiative: The CxC initiative was developed by CARE in cooperation with other advocacy groups in Georgia and is an effort to advance local, city-level cannabis reform.

Outreach: We communicate to our fellow Georgians about issues surrounding marijuana law reform in Georgia and try to help educate the public so that they can add their voice to the call for change. This includes newsletters, public events, stories on our blog, and posting on our Facebook page. You can help support our outreach efforts.

Public Speaking: Georgia C.A.R.E. Project provides speakers for civic meetings, debates, collage campus, radio and TV shows. Contact us for more information.

Rallies: We host rallies and events for educational purposes. If you would like to host an event at your city hall or county courthouse, we can help you organize.

Interviews: Georgia C.A.R.E. Project provides guest speakers to talk on behalf of the reform movement. We have conducted countless interviews and radio shows and serve as media consultants.

College Campus: We are organizing on college campuses and will host educational forums. If you would like to get organized on your campus, contact us. We work with numerous student groups and currently have one affiliate group at the University of Georgia, the Athens CARE Project.
