Energía Positiva

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

A Force of Inspiration

There’s a type of energy that changes communities. It comes with people. People with big dreams and determination. They bring this energy with them wherever they go: energía positiva.

This Hispanic Heritage Month, we're celebrating the people and organizations that spread energía positiva across Georgia.


Over the year, we have all had to overcome new obstacles facing the pandemic. Despite those challenges, these Latinx leaders and organizations still found ways  to reach our communities, creating an impact and empowering people with energía positiva. Hear their stories and watch how they continue to push Georgia forward.
