What is urban policy now? Join me for my 2019 State of the Borough event

There are still tickets available to my State of the Borough event at 2 pm this Sunday, February 24, 2019, at NYU’s Skirball Center! The event will focus on present-day urban policy, featuring a panel discussion with an expert group of guests:

  • Jonathan Bowles, Executive Director, Center for an Urban Future, a think tank that serves as a catalyst for smart and sustainable policies to reduce inequality, increase economic mobility, and grow the economy in New York City.
  • Juan Gonzalez, former columnist for the New York Daily News(for almost 30 years) and the author of Harvest of Empire, News for All the People, and Reclaiming Gotham: Bill de Blasio and the Movement to End America’s Tale of Two Cities.
  • Maya Wiley, Professor of Urban Policy and Management and Senior Vice President for Social Justice at The New School, and former counsel to Mayor de Blasio.
  • JoAnn Yoo, Executive Director of Development at the Asian American Federation and a member of the board of directors of the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York.

Can’t make it? The event will be live-streamed by the Manhattan News Network and posted on my Facebook page. You can also follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #SOTB2019 and #UrbanPolicyNow.
