Glynn Democrats Monthly Issues Forum

On January 22nd, we will begin hosting a Monthly Issues Forum featuring a guest speaker or a panel presentation on an issue of interest to Democrats in Glynn County. The forum will be held on the 4th Monday of each month (except August and December) from 7-8 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church on Norwich Street in Brunswick.

During the Q&A session after the program, we engage in lively and civil discussion to understand better how issues of national import, such as climate change, the economy, voting rights and education, affect our lives right here in Glynn County. We learn a lot about the issues and about each other every time. You’re invited to attend to meet your Democratic neighbors and to get involved in the conversation. Check out the upcoming programs for January and February. Bring a friend or neighbor.
