Discussion: Encouraging Diversity in our Cities

City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs presents
Welcoming Week
Discussion: Encouraging Diversity in our Cities
Atlanta is a diverse place that mixes cultures, religions, and worldviews. Its diverse population is constantly growing through people looking for employment, education, and a thriving local scene with awesome restaurants, great arts and ample green spaces. As new people move here, we want to ask:
How can we make Atlanta a welcoming city for everyone?

Date: Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Time: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Venue: Center for Civic Innovation, 115 Martin Luther King Junior Drive SW, Suite 304, Atlanta, GA 30303
Tickets are FREE for members, $10 for non-members

How are we currently combating these challenges?
