The biggest issues facing our country – racial justice, economic fairness, immigration, infrastructure – aren’t simply talking points for America’s mayors. While federal leaders show neglect or even hostility towards cities, mayors face the issues head-on as they lead diverse and growing cities through turbulent times. During this panel you’ll hear how New York’s Bill De Blasio, Portland’s Ted Wheeler, and Austin’s Steve Adler are part of a growing alliance of mayors that are innovating – and organizing – their way through the storm.
