ATLANTA - Ambassador Andrew Young will address the Atlanta Press Club on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at the One Ninety One Club In Atlanta.

Andrew Young is a politician, diplomat, pastor, speaker, board member, author and founder of Good Works International. He served as Atlanta Mayor and Ambassador to the United Nations under President Jimmy Carter.

Ambassador Young has held a wide variety of leadership positions over the past several decades. As a colleague, top aide, and friend to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he was a strategist and negotiator during many Civil Rights campaigns that resulted in passage of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act. He was elected to three terms as a congressman and was the first African-American appointed U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

As Mayor of Atlanta, Young was instrumental in bringing in billions of dollars of private investments to the city and making Atlanta the prosperity engine that it is today. He further expanded the city’s programs to include minority- and female-owned businesses in city contracts. As co-chair for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, he successfully lobbied for the 1996 Olympic Games to be held in Atlanta.

Ambassador Young remains active in community matters. He participates in events that foster sound public policy, economic development, human rights and education. He currently serves as co-chairman of the consulting firm Good Works International, a role that allows him to continue his long-held mission of facilitating economic development in the Caribbean and Africa.
