The Urban Agenda and the Second Obama Administration
Arnhold Hall at The New School (55 W. 13th St., 2nd Fl., Manhattan)
Free, RSVP required

The Center for New York City Affairs at The New School presents the annual Nathan Levin Lecture on Public Policy.

How do cities fit into the current debate in Washington, if they fit at all? Are the Obama policies on education, urban development, and social welfare leveraging meaningful improvements for New York and other cities, or is it more of the same? How will the administration’s policies address the social justice issues so central to his campaign, particularly in terms of making additional opportunities available to economically and socially disadvantaged Americans?

Remarks by:

Marc H. Morial, President and CEO, National Urban League

Followed by a conversion with:

Dorian Warren, associate professor of international and public affairs, Columbia University
Shin-pei Tsay, director of cities and transportation in the energy and climate program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Mark Winston Griffith, executive director, Brooklyn Movement Center

Moderated by:

Andrew White, director, Center for New York City Affairs at The New School
