23rd Annual David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum
On Thursday, July 9, 2020, the David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum held its first digital event. The online event featured Van Jones, CEO of REFORM Alliance, CNN host, and NY Times best-selling author, in conversation with Michael Nutter, 98th Mayor of Philadelphia in a discussion that explored societal inequities exposed by COVID-19 in conjunction with systemic racism and opportunities to repair policy and bring about a more just and equitable society.
Named for the 106th Mayor of the nation’s largest city, the first (and only) African American Mayor elected in New York City, this annual forum has addressed many of the challenging issues that successful urban ecosystems must contend with — including education, the environment, labor, tourism, incarceration and fiscal crises – for over two decades.
The Emma L. Bowen Community Service Center honored Mayor Dinkins in 2018 with the Emma L. Bowen Humanitarian Award.
