|Info||For more than 20 years, Simone has worked as an activist and advocate in Atlanta and across the south. She has tackled a broad range of issues including workplace equality, access to affordable healthcare, fighting HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination, safe schools for all children, youth empowerment and women’s issues. |
As the representative for Georgia’s 58th district, Simone will bring her experience working across broad coalitions to the Georgia House. She’s eager to communicate with her constituents about the important decisions facing their area and work with them to provide the best outcome possible.
“I’m passionate about taking overwhelming and complex information and making it accessible to the people whom it will affect most, that they might make informed choices about their everyday lives,” she said.
Simone has extensive credentials as an advocate for the LGBT community, which will serve her well when she represents several high-density LGBT areas in her district. She is a former community educator for Lambda Legal’s southern region office, and has also worked at the Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative. Furthermore, she has participated in ADORE, a college based organization developed to support LGBT students of color at Agnes Scott College, as well as ZAMI, Atlanta’s premier organization for Lesbians of African descent.
