State of the South: Atlanta | October 1-3, 2024

The State of the South unites people to envision a region where all people thrive. The program amplifies issues of inequity, calling on individuals to cultivate deeper connections and collectively pursue change that benefits all.


Please join us for the State of the South in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 1-3, 2024, as we gather around food, art, and critical conversation on making Atlanta, Georgia, and the larger South more equitable. What policies and investments must we prioritize to ensure today’s youth thrive in 2055?

Your voice is essential to these critical conversations.

Stay tuned for more updates, registration and program announcements here in the coming weeks. Questions or accessibility requests?

Sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Kresge Foundation.

We hope to see you in Atlanta!
