About

Georgia’s population is growing and becoming increasingly diverse. Over the past decade, the population of Georgia increased 18%. The New American Majority (NAM) - people of color, those 18 to 29 years of age, and unmarried women are a significant part of that growth. The NAM makes up 62% of the voting age population in Georgia and only 53% of registered voters.
