About Georgia NAACP

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has had an unbroken presence in Georgia since 1917. The Georgia NAACP maintains a network of branches throughout Georgia, from cities to small rural counties.

About JUSTGeorgia Coalition

We are a collective of Georgia organizations, activists, faith leaders, attorneys and justice-seeking community members. We believe that the killing of Ahmaud Arbery was the result of decades of systemic harm against Black Georgians. We hold two truths: (1) that many in our communities want to see that the killers of Ahmaud Arbery are accountable for the trauma they have inflicted on an entire community and (2) that our contributions must better equip Georgians to respond to the multiple systemic ills inflicting violence on our communities on a daily basis. You can read more about the work, demands and calls to action at just-georgia.org.
