On March 31, we attended the annual Good Trouble Awards, hosted by Center for Civic Innovation at the Fox Theater. We were one of three organizations being honored for Championing Equity.
The Good Trouble Awards are given in honor of the late John Lewis to individuals who are unafraid to get into “good, necessary trouble” for the advancement of our communities in Atlanta. The Championing Equity honor recognizes organizations fighting to ensure that a person’s identity––whether race, gender, or sexual orientation––is not a barrier to their joy, success, and/or well-being. Just the kind of trouble we’re committed to at RE.
We’re honored to have our work recognized, but we acknowledge that recognition is not an end in itself. Whenever we’re lifted up, the bar raises with us. It’s gratifying to know that we are making a difference; it helps renew our sense of purpose as we strive to do even more.
We are indebted to the village of supporters who make this work possible. This honor belongs to you as much as it does to us, and we want to take a moment to recognize your immense contribution to everything that RE stands for. Thank you sincerely for all that you do.
