In this week's episode of An Honorable Profession, NewDEAL CEO and host Debbie Cox Bultan talks with Atlanta Councilmember Amir Farokhi about how local governments can restore faith and trust with effective leadership. Whether through participatory budgeting or reducing generational poverty, Councilmember Farokhi highlights the importance of returning agency to local communities. They also discuss what it's like having Georgia in the national spotlight with leaders like NewDEALer Stacey Abrams, the surprise findings from the guaranteed income study in Dr. Martin Luther King's former neighborhood, and what a "Night Mayor" is.

Stay tuned to the end to hear a fun fact on how the naming of the "Care Package" came about!
