One Region Initiative

Creating an inclusive metro Atlanta region in which all people, including immigrants and refugees, have the opportunity to reach their greatest potential, engage with the larger community, and fully contribute their talents.

The One Region Initiative seeks to create an inclusive metro Atlanta region in which all people, including immigrants and refugees, have the opportunity to reach their greatest potential, engage with the larger community, and fully contribute their talents, expanding prosperity and well-being for all.

The program does this by gaining the solid commitment of local government, business leaders, community organizations, immigrant and refugee communities, and members of the receiving communities to create and then adopt welcoming practices.

The One Region Initiative is led by Welcoming America and supported by the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta and regional entities.
