Georgia Guide Dog Users, GGDU
Georgia Guide Dog Users is a special interest affiliate of GCB and is an affiliate of Guide Dog Users, Inc. We strive to promote and advocate for the
civil rights of guide dog handlers in Georgia through involvement in activities in our communities and in the legislative process. GGDU works to educate
the public about the important role guide dogs play in our lives and about the federal and state laws that guarantee
our access accompanied by our dogs to public accommodations. Drawing on our experiences and knowledge, we provide peer support, advocacy and information
to guide dog handlers throughout the state.
We hold membership meetings twice each year, virtually and in person, and host other informal gatherings. Contact GGDU president, Marj Schneider, for further
