I was pleased to host the 2018 Wilder Symposium “By the People: The Role of Urban Communities in Improving Housing, Education, and Public Policy” at Virginia Commonwealth University this week.

Our speakers were excellent and the discussion was a deep dive into the issues facing urban communities, particularly issues of housing and education. As I stated in an interview before the event this week, “we talk about housing and education policy today as if it was at sometime right. It never has been right, anywhere in the country, for all of America’s people.”

You can view a video of the event, including my remarks, here.
