Surrounded by hundreds of well-wishers, Meredith Lilly received a proclamation on March 2 recognizing her “contributions to politics and public policy and for the positive impact that she has had locally and abroad” from the Atlanta City Council. Councilmember Andrea Boone made the presentation.













Lilly, an attorney, entrepreneur and political activist, was recognized during national Women’s History Month.

“I am honored and humbled by this recognition,” said Lilly. “My siblings and I learned to be servant leaders from our parents who never missed an opportunity to help those in need.”

“Meredith will tell you the truth and is a powerful advocate,” said DeKalb CEO Michael Thurmond, who attended the event. “She is one of the great women in DeKalb County and the State of Georgia.”

Other speakers at the ceremony included a variety of public officials and community activists including:

Mereda Davis-Johns, DeKalb County Commissioner

Steven Reed, Mayor of Montgomery, AL

Rev. Gerald Durley, Sr., pastor of Providence Missionary Baptist Church, Atlanta

Dr. Jamal Bryant, pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church
