VOICES: Moving from Inspiration to Execution


Standing with elected officials to realize an equitable Atlanta 

In a forum held by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the candidates for Atlanta mayor in attendance all answered that it was time for a new “Atlanta Way” – decentralizing power from primarily serving the civic and corporate elites toward centering prosperity within the community through more equitable initiatives like prioritizing local employment when large companies move to the city. It was inspiring to hear that regardless of what side of the aisle they were on, candidates agreed that equity was the way to move Atlanta forward.  

The elections are now over and Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens, Council President Doug Shipman, and a host of new and vibrant City Council members could usher in the change we all seek if they are willing to stand courageously together in ways that finally create environments of healing, prosperity, and inclusivity – the “Beloved Community” that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of so many years ago.
