November 14 Forum – Transforming Placemaking: Expanding Opportunities for People and Places
While American cities are driving many aspects of the nation’s strong economy, they are also sites of serious inequality based on race and geography. The Brookings Institute will hold an event to launch the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Center for Transformative Placemaking, a new initiative focused on place-based opportunity and poverty. Following a keynote address from Carol Coletta, senior fellow at the Kresge Foundation, there will be a panel discussion including Patrice Frey, president and CEO of National Main Street Center, Inc.; Elissa Gertler, director of planning and development for Portland’s Metro; Shauen V.T. Pearce, director of economic development and inclusion policy for Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey; and Robert Stewart, executive vice chairman of JBG Smith Properties. The event will be held at Brookings in Washington, D.C., from 9:30-11:30 a.m. ET. Click here to register.
