Eric Garcetti – Reimagining How Cities Thrive

July 11, 2018  • Aspen Community Programs

A conversation with the Honorable Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles, and Aspen Institute president and CEO Dan Porterfield on the lessons Mayor Garcetti has learned from running the second largest city in the country, from infrastructure and housing, to raising the minimum wage and making community college free. The mayor’s leadership has had an extraordinary impact on national and international stages, including helping rally mayors from across America to adopt the Paris Climate Agreement and leading the first National Day of Action on Immigration.

This talk was part of the McCloskey Speaker Series.
