Read CIS of Atlanta, CEO Frank Brown's Latest Saporta Report Article

"You’re nothing but a poverty pimp!"

That’s not an attack I would expect to be leveled against me, much less at a gathering of metro Atlanta leaders. While said in a moment of anger, it was a teachable moment for me and others who witnessed the ill-informed outburst.

I begin my thought leadership article in the February edition of the Saporta Report with that quote to highlight my journey to building equity for all Metropolitan Atlanta children.

This won't be the last article I share. I participate in a monthly Saporta Report thought-leadership column called "The Guardians of Atlanta's Future" allowing me to share my journey to building equity for all Metropolitan Atlanta children.

Click on the link below to read more about this saddening, yet inspiring experience and learn more about the young man in the picture, Antonio. He's one of the reasons I keep going, fighting for equality for all CIS of Atlanta students.
