Bridging the Divide Award, honoring Bill Nordmark

2018 Honoree John Grant with the late Bill Nordmark who led the Atlanta Friendship Initiative.

This award was born in 2018 after the sudden death of Bill Nordmark. The Atlanta  Friendship Initiative was a simple and powerful concept- have two people of different races or ethnic backgrounds agree to meet at least once a quarter and bring their families together once a year in fellowship.

His partner in this initiative, John Grant, was the first recipient of this award in 2018, in memory of his dear friend and the history they created together.
