A New South is Rising

A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE FOR SOUTHWEST GEORGIANS

WATCH

SOWEGA Rising is a non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Southwest Georgia, comprised of member citizens and organizations which support the organization’s mission.

Our goal is to facilitate Southwest Georgia’s rise from the bottom to the top of quality of life metrics by empowering individuals and revitalizing communities through rural revitalization, community organizing, education, coalition-building and advocacy in the areas of human and civil rights and social justice, and by increasing citizen engagement in the democratic processes of our state.

We mobilize people and resources to improve the well-being, quality of life and political power of marginalized Southwest Georgians.
