Please join the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the Annie E. Casey Foundation and The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta for a conversation around opportunity and economic mobility. Third in a series, this event will continue to highlight ways to build opportunity in metro Atlanta. The State of the South report, published by Durham, NC-based MDC, paints a clear portrait of the southeastern United States and spells out critical recommendations for economic and social advancement.
The 2014 edition of State of the South features analysis of state and regional data and calls on the region to develop and implement purposeful policies and systemic practices—an “infrastructure of opportunity”—to bolster the prospects for its 15- to 24-year-olds to achieve economic resilience as adults and a fulfilling social and civic life. Please read the full publication or the executive summary.
Please come and hear about this important work, as well as what is happening in metro Atlanta around these issues. Your input from this session will inform the development of the ARC’s Region’s Plan, a comprehensive plan which will guide the growth of metro Atlanta.
Breakfast refreshments will be served.
