March Network And Grow Gmm Presents District 2 City Councilman Kwanza Hall says
Join us for our March Network and Grow General Monthly Meeting! Councilman Hall will be talking about the importance of young people in politics in Atlanta.

The Honorable Kwanza Hall is in his third term on the Atlanta City Council. He represents District 2, the heart of Atlanta and the city’s most diverse council district. Its neighborhoods include Midtown, Downtown, Inman Park, Poncey Highland, Candler Park, and the Old Fourth Ward.

Hall has been recognized for his leadership in many arenas. In 2013, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation recognized his “Year of Boulevard” initiative to improve public safety and expand opportunities for families along District 2’s Boulevard corridor. In 2012, Georgia State University honored him with the Pioneer Award, its highest recognition for leadership promoting arts and culture in downtown Atlanta. In 2011, Atlanta’s Park Pride honored Hall for governmental leadership in parks and greenspace advocacy; he was voted by an independent media panel as one of the 100 Most Influential Atlantans; and Atlanta’s American Institute of Architects chapter created the Kwanza Hall Award for civic leadership in architectural design. In 2009, Creative Loafing named him Atlanta’s “Best Local Political Figure.” In 2008, he was named one of Georgia Trend magazine’s “40 Under 40.”
