Nelson Mandela

We mourn the passing of Nelson Mandela, whose example, words and deeds have inspired and consistently reinforced the work of our grantees, colleagues and staff, in South Africa and across the globe, to secure and advance human rights and dignity, peace, reconciliation, restorative justice, and democracy.  

All of us at Atlantic celebrate his life and his signal accomplishments.  We are reinvigorated by all he has stood for and done for humankind.
