Better Georgia aims to build progressive majority

Bryan Long

Athens-based Better Georgia is a nonprofit political advocacy organization with the mission of addressing real problems faced by Georgia's residents, something its gay executive director says the state's politicians simply do not do.

Founded in 2011 by Bryan Long, who is gay, Better Georgia is a progressive response to the state's political leaders who are decidedly conservative. But Long says that Republican leadership or not, it is still possible to solve problems and advance progress in a way that benefits all Georgians.
