DPG LGBTQ Caucus and Young Democrats of GA Stonewall Caucus to Host Meet and Greet with Rep. Taylor Bennett
Atlanta, GA – Saturday, November 21, the Democratic Party of Georgia LGBTQ Caucus and Young Democrats of Georgia Stonewall Caucus will host a meet and greet with Rep. Taylor Bennett. The event will be held at Manuel’s Tavern in Atlanta, and is co-hosted by Georgia Equality and the Fulton County Democratic Party.
“Rep. Bennett was a staunch ally to our community even before he ran for office, then ran unabashedly on our shared values of equality and inclusion—and won,” said DPG LGBTQ Chair Jim Taflinger in a statement. “We look forward to learning even more about Taylor and his priorities for the upcoming legislative session. Taylor and likeminded elected officials who stand for justice—for what is right—have been instrumental in the progress we’ve made. The host organizations of this event are thrilled to have this discussion with Rep. Bennett.”
Rep. Taylor Bennett was elected to represent Georgia House District 80 in a special election this past summer. Bennett soundly defeated his opposition in the run-off election, switching control of the seat from Republican to Democrat.
The joint event will be held at Manuel’s Tavern (602 North Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30307) on November 21, 2015 at 11AM.
