Movements in the streets. Schools shut down due to COVID-19. Fights for fair housing and quality transportation. Even before the uncertainty brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and the racial reckoning that came to the fore in 2020, America’s cities were leading the nation to address the wide-range of issues facing their communities, from big concepts like equity and social justice, to smaller but still important issues like fines and fees, potholes, and basic city services. Join an esteemed panel of Black mayors who are at the forefront of governance for a discussion of race, politics, and policy in some of the county’s most diverse and dynamic cities.
This virtual event, moderated by Derek Douglas, VP for Civic Engagement and External Affairs, will feature Karen Freeman-Wilson (Gary, IN), Michael Nutter (Philadelphia, PA), Steven Reed (Montgomery, AL) and Michael Tubbs (Stockton, CA).
