As published in the Atlanta Business Chronicle on Feb. 2, 2018

The national nonprofit Welcoming Americawould like for metro Atlanta to become a “welcoming region,” one that would embrace people of all races and ethnicities.

The nonprofit, which is based in Decatur, so far has reached agreements with 103 cities around the country that are now welcoming cities, including five in our region: Atlanta, Brookhaven, Clarkston, Decatur and Norcross.
