Partnerships are Atlanta's greatest tool for change

Sagdrina Jalal (Center for Civic Innovation), Jennifer Hirsch (SLS), and Dori Pap (Institute for Leadership and Social Innovation) recently collaborated on a guest column for Saporta Report, focused on the idea that Black women are pioneers of social innovation, and their long history of working to create community – even when exhausted, even while being ignored, even as credit goes to others – should be recognized..  For these three organizations, a shared belief in the importance of supporting innovation led by Black women provides a rare example of how large institutions can propel the work of community leaders forward by playing supportive, rather than leading, roles.
