Prioritize NYC Infrastructure Needs

Wednesday, Jan 18, 2017

The 45th president has promised to rebuild America through a massive program to repair and improve the nation's infrastructure.

From subway riders to NYCHA residents, New Yorkers don't need The Donald to tell them that big pieces of the city need an upgrade. But will President Trump's billions find their way to the neighborhoods and people who need it most? Will the jobs building better bridges or broadband open new opportunities, or make inequality worse? Team up with our panel of experts to learn about the potential and perils for New York's physical city in the Trump era-and craft a list of priorities for the new administration.

Join us for a participatory forum where we'll dive into the issues + together create a top ten list of infrastructural needs for NYC.

Sponsor: City Limits

Date: Wednesday January 18, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Location: CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 219 W 40th Street, Room 308

Moderator: Jarrett Murphy, City Limits Editor and Publisher

Forum leaders include Vanessa Vanterpool, Tri-state Transportation Campaign Executive Director and journalist Neil deMause. Attendees will roll up their sleeves with us to define the improvements and who needs them most.

RSVP: Eventbrite. Event is free but space is limited, register now!
