Today I had the opportunity to attend the Women’s Solidarity Society Luncheon sponsored by Shirley Franklin and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. The National Center for Civil and Human Rights began as a vision shared by civil rights advocates and community members.
In 2005, a benchmarking study requested by Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and Ambassador Andrew Young resulted in a working group, which developed recommendations for the Center's location, content and programming. Following its establishment in 2007, the center implemented its first programming to commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2008.
The physical center is expected to open in 2014. Learn more here http://www.cchrpartnership.org/Why/OurPurpose/index.html

I love Ingrid Saunders Jones, former Senior Vice President of The Coca-Cola Company and Chair of the Coca-Cola Foundation. She has so many great stories about my Dad when they were both young. — at Piedmont Driving Club.
