The Georgia Democratic Party hosted its annual State Dinner at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta this past Thursday. The event brought together not only political movers and shakers but also concerned and active party members in Georgia politics. The crowd was diverse, energetic and fired up for change. There were some familiar faces at the event to hear the keynote speaker, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, as well as national and Georgia political leaders. Here are some photos of the event.
