Monthly Democratic Issues Forum
All Glynn County Democrats are invited to attend our monthly issues forums every fourth Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 1400 Norwich St., Brunswick, 31520 (Directions).
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. Bring a friend or neighbor.
Feb. 26, 7:00 p.m.
Program: Virginia Brown, president and CEO of the United Way of Coastal Georgia, and Dr. Don Mathews, director of the Reg Murphy Center for Economic and Policy Studies and professor of economics in the School of Business and Public Management at College of Coastal Georgia, will present up-to-the-minute information and data about “Poverty in Glynn County: What Does It Mean to Our Children and Our Future?”
Recent articles in our local papers have highlighted the studies showing that more than 25 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds in our county are neither working nor going to school. Virginia and Don have been at the forefront of efforts to better understand the implications of these studies so we can adopt public policies to reverse this trend and help us avoid the social, economic and public safety crises that flow from them. The Great Recession hit our area harder than most, and we are still rebounding after others have recovered. How is that affecting us, and what can we do about it? You can do your homework by reading this story in The Brunswick News.
