The strength of American cities – and the nation as a whole – depends on generating inclusive growth for people of all races, ethnicities and incomes. Yet even in our most economically vibrant cities, not all residents are benefiting from that growth, resulting in stark racial and economic disparities that are even more extreme in distressed communities.
Inaugurated in 2018, the Shared Prosperity Partnership – a collaboration of The Kresge Foundation, the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, the Urban Institute, and Living Cities – supports local leaders in select communities who are committed to advancing inclusive growth through data analysis, research, and access to national experts, networks and financial resources. The Partnership elevates promising models through publications, public forums and a national summit to spark dialogue among practitioners and support evidence-based policy at the state and national levels.
Join us for a virtual dialogue with Alicia John-Baptiste, SPUR President and CEO and Jennifer Bradley, Senior Fellow – American Cities at The Kresge Foundation in which they discuss the progress of the Shared Prosperity Partnership and how this work is informing the future of urbanism.
