Earlier this month, State Representative Debra Bazemore (D-South Fulton) attended the 2019 Public Leadership Institute’s (PLI) State Strategy Forum National Conference in Washington, D.C. The three-day conference invites about 120 state legislators from over 40 different states to tackle key issues of equity and justice and to explore ways to improve the economic and social conditions of Americans.
During the conference, state legislators participated in and led several policy and leadership sessions. Rep. Bazemore presented “Skills Session: Preparing to Win Advocacy Training.”
Other sessions covered making healthy families a priority, fair share economics, protecting the earth for the next generation, protecting abortion rights, policies that support working families and more.
“This Public Leadership Conference was packed full of great speakers and relevant information,” said Rep. Bazemore. “We came away equipped with helpful strategies regarding current situations that all of us face in various parts of the country. I believe these strategies will enable us to effectively move towards a more positive outcome for our constituents.”
Rep. Bazemore is a city of South Fulton resident who represents constituents in portions of Clayton, Fayette and Fulton counties. She was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2016 and currently serves on the Human Relations and Aging, Intragovernmental Coordination, Natural Resources and Environment, and State Planning and Community Affairs committees.
