Three Atlanta women got big surprises Wednesday, Jan. 24, and if you look up as you’re driving around town, you might see them. Mark Ruffalo’s ATL100 campaign surprised these “Atlanta Power Women” by unveiling billboards honoring their leadership in advancing 100% clean energy.
The billboards underline the leading role that women are playing in making clean energy more accessible and affordable for all people, regardless of income, zip code or race.
“In communities across the country women are leading the way to a 100% clean energy future, and today’s honorees are part of that powerful trend,” Sarah Shanley Hope, executive director of the ATL100 campaign, said in a statement. “We celebrate these ‘Atlanta Power Women’ and leaders like them across America for making our cities, our communities and our nation cleaner, healthier, and more equitable.”
Honoree Malissa “Mali” Hunter is a celebrity chef and partner in Tree Sound Studios. She uses her influential platform to promote healthy eating and environmental sustainability, including adopting clean, efficient energy. Powered by on-site solar energy, Tree Sound Studios boasts top talent such as Toni Braxton, Justin Bieber, Drake and Lenny Kravitz on its client list.
She writes on her Instagram: “What a fun surprised 😲 I’m so humbled thanks to everyone at @100isnowand my team for surprising me with this awesome award and billboard in the #ATL#Atl100 #MaliWorld #MaliLovesYou #Grateful”
The two other honorees are Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley, executive director of Georgia Interfaith Power & Light; and Felicia Davis, director of the Building Green Initiative at Clark Atlanta University.
