Building an Opportunity Agenda for America's Cities

About this webinar

*If you have trouble accessing the webinar or the replay, please contact Stephanie at sarevalo@nycfuture.org.

The pandemic is laying bare the fundamental inequalities of the U.S. economy, including a lack of economic mobility that has left millions of Americans in financial precarity—and fractured the promise of the land of opportunity. Although there is a growing recognition of the need to tackle these inequalities and opportunity gaps, there is still limited clarity about the policies that would be most effective. This lunchtime conversation will explore concrete steps that mayors should take to build a more inclusive economy and discuss municipal initiatives/programs that have already had some success in expanding economic opportunity and which could be replicated elsewhere. And with the possibility that the November 3rd election will bring changes to the White House and Congress, the conversation will also examine what leaders in Washington should do in 2021 to create a bold new opportunity agenda.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Gary Cunningham, President & CEO, Prosperity Now
  • Winston C. Fisher, Co-Author, The Opportunity Agenda: A Bold Democratic Plan to Grow the Middle Class; Partner, Fisher Brothers & CEO, AREA15
  • Joseph Parilla, Fellow, Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program
  • Sarah Treuhaft, Vice President of Research, PolicyLink
