We couldn't have made this event happen without the help and support of our partners, The City of Atlanta, EV Club of The South, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport & The Ray, and the Sierra Club-Georgia chapter. Given the success of the event and feedback from attendees and participants, we know that more events and opportunities to engage around this topic are needed in our communities. EVHybridNoire is committed to increasing opportunities for engagement and connecting diverse communities to EV adoption and EV technology.
