On August 30th, Astraea is hosting a community discussion with Mary Hooks, Co-Director of SONG. Join us at The Foundation Center of Atlanta to hear about SONG's recent #BlackMamaBailOut action that freed 64 Black mothers and caregivers across the South on Mother's Day and garnered national attention and support to the tune of 3,000 donors raising over $200,000.
Mary will share what it meant to lead this action and the collaborative efforts involved, why the action matters—especially now—and some of SONG's learnings along the way. This will be a casual conversation filled with insight, candor and opportunity for learning and to be in community.
