We Are What Democracy Looks Like

The Public Policy Network (PPN) is a civic organization that monitors state and national policy proposals that affect individuals and our communities. We are an all-volunteer group that provides data, information and resources to enable the citizens of western North Carolina and north Georgia to make informed decisions about policies that affect them.

In 2018, we focused on public policies affecting the health, environment and financial security of those citizens residing in Towns, Union, Cherokee and Clay counties.
 
We welcome participation in our informational forums, special events and monthly PPN meetings.  

WHAT CAN I DO?

There are numerous ways that citizens can become informed and involved in decisions made by their government.
