PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Columbus Georgia Family Justice Project Public Discussion
Join the Georgia Family Justice Project Community Discussion at 6:00pm on Wednesday, June 7th at the Columbus Public Library Auditorium, 3000 Macon Road, in Columbus. This communication discussion is aimed to raise public awareness of the need for broader, more inclusive definitions of ‘family’ in public and workplace policies.
Only 20% of today’s families identify as a “nuclear” family; mom, dad and two kids. Our families are multi-generational, blended, multi-lingual, have LGBTQ parents, and other non-traditional forms of family. However, the legal definition of ‘families’ found in public policy from adoption to hospital visitation, and workplace leave do not include many of us.
The Columbus discussions is the first of a series of statewide community dialogues to raise awareness through family stories and conversations for the public, private and nonprofit sectors. Additionally the “Typical Georgia Families” photography exhibit highlighting the diversity of Georgia’s families will be on display for this event.
So join us for the Georgia Family Justice Project Community Discussion at the Columbus Public Library Auditorium at 6:00pm on Wednesday, June 7th. Lite fare and refreshments will be provided.
