Event: Hard Times, Solid Policies to Renew American Communities

The Brookings Institution is holding a forum on October 13th to address the continued hardships facing American cities and states. The event will include two panel discussions, paper presentations, and a key-note address by Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm. Governor Granholm will be joined at the event by former U.S. Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, New York City Deputy Mayor Steve Goldsmith and other experts. The forum is focused on policy solutions for renewing American communities; a strategy paper and three proposals from the Hamilton Project will provide a range of options for individual workers and communities to help recover from the economic crises.
Materials from this event will be available through the Brookings Institution on the event webpage.
