As we attempt to address the long term impacts of COVID-19 and the struggle for social justice across the nation, now is the moment to foster meaningful discussions around reimagining and rebuilding our cities. New circumstances are bringing new challenges, and convening nationally recognized voices and experts to share ideas could not be more pressing. A combination of broadcast, digital and virtual tools will be used to connect dynamic voices from around the country.

American Cities Rebuilding is the first of an ongoing series of convenings that will focus on cities both in New Jersey and across America offering a hyper-focus on urban issues through the dual lenses of COVID-19 and social justice. Conversations and remarks will examine those issues that may determine how cities newly emerge as resilient and thriving ecosystems and also highlight persistent and new problems facing urban communities. Join online to explore potential solutions and programs that can offer paths forward.

American Cities Rebuilding is a collaboration between NJTV News, New Jersey’s statewide public media newsroom; partner newsroom, NJ Spotlight, a leading source of digital public policy, environmental and education news in New Jersey; and, WNET, the nation’s flagship public media organization.
