The 2013 Nathan Levin Lecture

The Urban Agenda and the Second Obama Administration

The Center for New York City Affairs at The New School and the Milano School for International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy present the annual Nathan Levin Lecture on Public Policy.

How do cities fit into the current debate in Washington? Are the Obama policies on education, urban development, and social welfare leveraging meaningful improvements for New York and other cities? How will the administration's policies address the social justice issues that were central to the president's reelection campaign--particularly in terms of making opportunities available to economically and socially disadvantaged Americans?

Remarks by:
Marc H. Morial
, President and CEO, National Urban League 

Followed by a conversation with:
Dorian Warren
, associate professor of international and public affairs, Columbia University  

Shin-pei Tsay, director of cities and transportation in the energy and climate program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Mark Winston Griffith, executive director, Brooklyn Movement Center 

Moderated by:
Andrew White, director, Center for New York City Affairs at The New School

The Nathan Levin Lecture on Public Policy was established in 1989 in honor of the late Nathan Levin, a trustee and acting president of The New School. 

This event was made possible thanks to generous support of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, the Milano Foundation and the Nathan Levin memorial lecture endowment.
