Are You Ready for Real Change in Glynn County?
In June 2020, a group of friends got together to discuss the issues that had arisen in their hometown of Brunswick, Georgia. That conversation sparked several "what-if" questions that allowed them to dream about a better future for their city.
A Better Glynn was created to address those lingering questions. We exist to identify, educate, and equip individuals to be equity-driven decision-makers through civic engagement, policy advocacy, and leadership development.
Through our work, Glynn County will be a community in which ALL people have the opportunity to thrive and will serve as an example for engaging rural communities to advance equity.
Would you join us in that effort?
Help us create A Better Glynn.
Identify. Educate. Equip.
Glynn County will be a community where ALL people have the opportunity to thrive and will serve as an example for engaging rural communities to advance equity.
