Myra Kraft Open Classroom: Racial Disparities, Resilience, and Opportunity

December 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Current City of Boston governmental policies are contributing to transforming our region of changing demographics, new economic realities, and varying expectations of social justice. What are these new policies and how will they likely impact Boston’s quality of life in 2030? Who is setting these policies? How are diverse communities engaged in this process, and what are the metrics of success? What has been learned and changed over the past few years, and how do Washington’s new urban priorities affect city and regional policy-making?
