Olga Gorman (left), who moved to Atlanta from Ukraine just six months before, was one of the lead organizers for the Atlanta March of the Mothers. Olga was inspired by Ukrainian actress and volunteer Daria Malachova who encouraged the Ukrainian diaspora to organize similar marches worldwide with the goal to get additional media attention to the tragedy in Ukraine where every day kids are among the civilian causalities of war brought to their country by Putin.
