Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) has been named by Goodwill Industries International as a 2019 Policymaker Leader.

Johnson is receiving the award for demonstrating tremendous support of Goodwill’s public policy and legislative agenda, including criminal justice reform and workforce development.

“I am honored to receive this award from Goodwill,” said Johnson, who recently introduced legislation that supports regional economic development training for partners of Goodwill. “I have truly enjoyed working with Goodwill at job fairs, my annual Resources Fair and other events throughout the years to improve the life of Georgians across the 4thdistrict and the state.”

Johnson has been particularly supportive of Goodwill in North Georgia, speaking at the grand opening ceremony of its new headquarters in Decatur in 2016. The organization’s positive economic impact in his district—and, more broadly, the state of Georgia—has earned it the support of the men and women of the community.

“These awards recognize lawmakers who support the vital mission of Goodwill through important policies,” said Steve Preston, president and CEO at Goodwill Industries International. “Through endorsement and support from our champions in Congress, the needs of Goodwill program participants have been reflected through legislation, advocacy events, high-level committee meetings, and other profound means of advocating for our program participants.”
