Please join FCCP in welcoming Georgia State Representative Park Cannon (D- District 58) as our keynote speaker on Tuesday, May 9th at the Center for Civil and Human Rights! Representative Cannon is a dynamic, young leader who studied the civil rights movement and served as a nonprofit advocate for women’s health before being elected as the youngest Georgia lawmaker in February of 2016.
Rep. Cannon is excited to represent Midtown, Downtown, and Southwest Atlanta. She is passionate about sustainable neighborhood development and minority visibility in the south, and looks forward to welcoming this year’s attendees to Atlanta!
We’re inspired by her story and know you will be, too. Please join us at the FCCP 2017 Convening where we will learn how philanthropy can support more millennial leaders like Representative Cannon.
