EPU & The Bitter Southerner

Between recent Supreme Court decisions, congressional gridlock, and gerrymandering, creating a better South feels challenging like never before. And while national attention often focuses on the figures from our region halting progress, there are so many more people working to make big, positive changes from much smaller stages than D.C., but with no less importance. In partnership with The Bitter Southerner, the features below are the first two installments of a story series turning up the volume on the work done by student, municipal, and state-level leaders across the South building a more equitable and inclusive future through our Unum Fellowship program. Their stories prove extraordinary actions can come from anywhere and anyone—they just might inspire you to run for something in your community.
