Southern Company Presents: How Can Changing Neighborhoods Save Lives?

With Zack Rosenburg, CEO and Co-Founder of the St. Bernard Project //
In the wake of unrest in cities across America, how can the public and private sectors collaborate to effect positive change in struggling communities? A success story can be found in Atlanta. By incorporating its own engaging and life-altering programs, and partnering with like-minded organizations such as The First Tee, the East Lake Foundation is a national model of how to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Through holistic revitalization, and effective public-private partnerships, East Lake Meadows was transformed from a crime-ridden area to a thriving neighborhood with a top-rated charter school and a 95 percent reduction in crime. With Zack Rosenburg, CEO and Co-Founder of the St. Bernard Project. (Content produced by Southern Company.)
