Nathaniel Smith Speaking @ University of Rochester

March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

You’re invited to join fellow alumni, parents, and friends for a thought-provoking discussion with Nathaniel Smith, founder and chief equity officer of the Partnership for Southern Equity. Presented as part of our “Challenging Racism in Atlanta” sessions, these special events showcase Atlanta’s leaders and their commitment to combatting racism in the city.

The Partnership for Southern Equity (PSE) advances policies and institutional actions that promote racial equity and shared prosperity for all. Focusing on four key areas––energy, growth, health, and opportunity––PSE has developed strong partnerships and successful policy initiatives that help elevate and enable the communities of metropolitan Atlanta and the American South.

PSE’s notable accomplishments include:

• Creating the American South’s first equity mapping and framing tool, the Metro Atlanta Equity Atlas.
• Co-authoring numerous reports on economic and employment equity.
• Leading a coalition of diverse stakeholders to support a $13 million transit referendum that expanded Atlanta’s metropolitan transit system into a new county for the first time in 45 years.
