EXPLORE ATLANTA STORIES

 
A historic hub of the civil rights movement, Atlanta has served as the launching point for the Our Stories, Our Justice Campaign. Together with our partners, we have reached out to women and families and communities.

The inaugural event Telling Our Stories: Black Women’s Leadership Legacies was co-hosted by The GRO Fund, the Tender Foundation, Black Feminist Future and Represent GA, with support from WRFG.
