"A New Deal for a New Urban America"

Urban America faces immense challenges, yet the concerns of many communities are far too often left out of the national political and public policy discourse. That’s why I am organizing a forum entitled “A New Deal for a New Urban America” that will take place in Philadelphia on July 28, 2016. This free event which will be open to the public will be held at Arch Street United Methodist Church at 55 N. Broad Street on Thursday, July 28th from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. I am writing to invite you to participate in this solutions-driven forum.

Please visit our recently launched website: www.newdeal4newamerica.com which contains a running list of co-conveners, along with a growing list of research and writings that provide ideas about the details of the problems along with solutions to address those problems. You can also call my office at 717-787-7112 for more information.

Our President and CEO, Sharmain Matlock-Turner will be speaking at the forum, "A New Deal for a New Urban America". Come out to the forum and click here to learn more!
