Since 2013, the Atlanta Regional Commission has led Metro Atlanta Speaks, an annual survey of the thoughts, perspectives and priorities of Atlanta area residents. This year, like so many other things in 2020, the results are different. For the first time race and health were ranked as top community priorities. This year’s survey also revealed startling differences in how our younger residents and our residents of color perceive life in metro Atlanta. As 2020 closes and we prepare for 2021, join ARCHI partners on a deep dive into the data and consider what it reveals about the opportunities and challenges ahead.
