Atlanta, May 2017 – Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Rees:

“We are proud to join the Global Parliament of Mayors, an international network for sharing best practices, resources, and our cumulative talent. Around the world, cities are ascendant. Most of the world’s population and GDP are concentrated in cities, and this will only get stronger. This is why mayors need to be at the forefront of global challenges like immigration, social mobility, climate change, and resiliency. The City of Atlanta can learn a great deal from other cities around the world, and we look forward to sharing our own stories and successes.”
