Background

One Region Atlanta emerged from a national initiative called One Nation, a national initiative established as a reaction to the negative and prejudicial attitudes toward Muslim Americans following 9/11.  One Nation invited select community foundations from across the country to participate in building community-centered civic engagement programs that focused on creating more inclusive communities.  Atlanta has now joined several cities including Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Minnesota in these efforts to reduce the distinctions of “us” and “them” and broaden the sense of “WE.”
