Sara Toering - Center for Community Progress
While the change we often seek is systematic, many of the challenges and opportunities leaders encounter start with something very personal. Join this session to hear from Bambie Hayes-Brown and Sara Toering as they share on:
- How community development partnerships are helping to disrupt and reform inequitable and racist laws, policies, and practices in Georgia;
- The experiences that helped them evolve from resident organizers and tenant advocates to national community development leaders; and
- Community development’s opportunity to create change and more leaders today.
Set to the backdrop of the state of Georgia which is the well-known home of the world’s busiest airport, host of one of the most memorable Olympic games, and the seat of a thriving local economy; join in to hear their experiences, share questions, and interact with two active change leaders who are focused on place-based reform.
