A Municipal Blueprint for a More Inclusive Path to Prosperity


This event has passed.

America’s cities are facing an identity crisis. Cities represent both the idealistic promises of economic opportunity and the unprecedented gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” How can we help our cities develop policies to bridge these gaps?

Join Prosperity Now and the National League of Cities (NLC) on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 from 2-3pm EDT for a discussion on inclusive municipal economic strategies. During this webinar, we’ll introduce Prosperity Now’s latest publication, A Municipal Blueprint for a More Inclusive Path to Prosperity. We’ll also discuss the recent report from NLC’s Task Force on Economic Mobility and Opportunity, Keeping the American Dream Alive: Expanding Economic Mobility and Opportunity in America’s Cities. Our experts will share highlights of local-level policies that can help create financially secure futures for low-income communities and communities of color in cities across the United States.

Participants will:

  • Understand the unique roles that municipal leaders and city leaders play in inclusive policymaking;
  • Hear real examples of innovative local-level initiatives focused on financial security for low-income families and communities of color; and
  • Identify strategies to build on the successes of other cities.

We encourage advocates, local coalitions, municipal leaders and anyone interested in building stronger cities for all communities to join us for this virtual event to learn how Prosperity Now, along with our partners at the National League of Cities, can support your efforts along this path.
