A Discussion with Mayors: Cities and the Quest for Equity in America
This discussion will focus on the role of cities as key drivers in the quest for equity in our society. Cities have long been staging areas for upward mobility, but could contribute even more if approached with intentionality and strategy. In an era in which the traditional Federal mission of addressing inequality is stalled and states are impeded by budget realities, it falls to local governments to address these important subjects. Cities are at the epicenter of so many dimensions of inequality issues: demographic changes, the new economy, education and training, spatial patterns, race and immigration, and concentrated poverty. What are current best practices in cities for promoting these objectives and what are future prospect for progress?
