On August 1-3, 2019, The Summer Meeting will feature innovative city solutions to some of our cities’ toughest challenges. Topics include violence prevention, youth leadership, household financial stability, and the latest on opportunity zones. In addition to providing you with clear policy takeaways that you can implement in your city, we’ll also explore Columbia’s civil rights history and much more.
