EVENT: National Resource Network and USC Sol Price School of Public Policy Present Policy Report
25% of the nation’s economically challenged cities are concentrated in one state: California
Nearly 12 million people live in these economically challenged cities- the population of Ohio.
The National Resource Network, in partnership with the University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy, invite you to the release and discussion of one of the National Resource Network’s first major policy reports, “Hidden in Plain Sight: Why California’s Economically Challenged Cities Matter to the Federal and State Government.”
Robert Shrum, veteran political consultant and the current Carmen H. and Louis Warschaw Chair in Practical Politics and professor of the practice of political science at USC Dornsife, will moderate the discussion. Please join Aja Brown, Mayor of Compton; Antonio Villaraigosa, former Mayor of Los Angeles; Mercedes Márquez, former Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles; Jack Knott, Dean of the Price School of Public Policy; David Chiu, CA State Assemblymember; and others as we discuss why it is critical that we support these economically challenged cities, capitalize on their existing anchor institutions and resources, and unleash their true potential.
