SETTING A LOCAL EXAMPLE

Atlanta is marked by the legacies of the human rights activism of Martin Luther King Jr. and the innovation driven by the largest brands in the world. We are extending this history by bringing together activists, creatives, and entrepreneurs to address needs in revolutionary ways.

Plywood People has instigated and contributed to over 250 new start-ups who are creating new solutions to old problems. Your creation could be next.

 

Making a name

When we see physical plywood in communities, we see opportunity for change. Plywood is a short-term solution to long term problems. After experiencing the visual plywood in physical spaces all over the world mixed with people giving their lives toward restoration, we felt a responsibility to educate and unite these stories together.

We are a community not satisfied with short-term fixes, we strive for long term change.

Together, we will be known by the problems we solve. We are Plywood People.

IMPLEMENTATION

We believe we are able to speak into the projects of others because we are doing the hard work ourselves. We have implemented some of our own projects, such as More or Less, Yes or No and Gift Card Giver.
