Opening Plenary Session: Rights to Decent Housing: Local Lessons on Housing Affordability, Supply and Homelessness (All conference registrants are welcome to attend)
PLENARY DESCRIPTION
Rights to Decent Housing: Local Lessons on Housing Affordability, Supply and Homelessness

Nationally, over 550,000 people are homeless on a single night. Big cities with the least affordable rental housing markets such as New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles have the most severe homelessness incidence. In Los Angeles, the median rent price is $3,500 and the homelessness count is approximately 55,000 people. There is wide agreement that homelessness must be addressed, and growing housing supply and support services are critical features to addressing the problem locally. Nevertheless, market forces seem to be making it more difficult to grow affordable housing supply and independent NIMBY sentiments still flourish limiting siting of affordable housing in particular desirable locations in the metropolitan area. This panel will consider what current housing market trends suggest and provide a platform of debate on current housing policy programs and proposals being offered to remedy the problem. This will prove to be a lively debate about local housing policy in Los Angeles, which is likely applicable to housing policy debates around the country.

TH7.15.01 Fostering Health in Urban Communities: A Community Development Strategy 
This roundtable will focus on strategies to promote community development by fostering better health outcomes for residents. The conveners will share their experience in building a partnership between Sankofa CDC and the City of New Orleans Health Dept to expand the Healthy HeartBeats program to reach citizens throughout the Greater New Orleans Area. The program was initiated in the Lower Ninth Ward, a predominately working class lower socioeconomic neighborhood in New Orleans to reach a local, neighborhood-based population. Topics such as food access and increasing physical activity will be addressed. Roundtable attendees will be given the opportunity to share their experiences with similar or complementary strategies for community development.

TH7.15.02 Serious Games and Simulations for Public Engagement
Serious games and simulations have long been applied in a wide variety of contexts to engage stakeholders in planning and policy-making processes. Practical experience and empirical research on their use suggest that games and simulations can help to clarify issues, interests and potential solutions among groups; provide safe and inexpensive opportunities for experimentation; and foster collaboration and build relationships to solve problems. While we have decades of experience using serious games and simulations, the state-of-the-art continues to evolve. Key driving forces that provide opportunities and threats include rapidly evolving digital technologies, decreasing trust in traditional 'experts' and the data they present, and declining trust in government and willingness to invest in community efforts to tackle challenges. This BRT will explore how serious games and simulations are evolving to meet emerging challenges and capitalize on new opportunities.

TH7.15.05 The Urban Studies Honor Society: How to Start a Chapter
Looking for more innovative ways to market your academic program? Want to give your students a great career enhancement opportunity? 


Upsilon Sigma - The Urban Studies Honor Society is an option for both attracting new students and recognizing current students for their academic achievements.  Upsilon Sigma was established by the Urban Affairs Association (UAA) in 2018 as an international, multidisciplinary honor society. The Society  is dedicated to recognizing and encouraging excellence in scholarship, leadership, and engagement in urban studies and related fields. The mission is to promote academic excellence and enrich the educational experience of undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees related to urban studies.

Urban Studies is a broad umbrella term for academic programs and research that focus on the social, political, economic, spatial, physical, historical, cultural, and environmental dimensions of urban contexts. The issues and policies that impact urban places and populations are examined within a wide variety of academic disciplines. As such, Upsilon Sigma welcomes chapter applications from all fields of study. Here is a sample of urban-related topics that are examined by a broad range of academic disciplines.


In the past year, your colleagues at the following institutions have started Upsilon Sigma chapters:
  1. Cleveland State University (Levin College of Urban Affairs)
  2. Manhattan College (Urban Studies Program)
  3. Ohio State University (City and Regional Planning Program)
  4. Rutgers University-Newark (Global Urban Studies)
  5. University of Connecticut (Urban and Community Studies)
  6. University of Mary Washington (Urban Studies Minor)
  7. University of Nevada, Las Vegas (School of Public Policy and Leadership)
  8. University of Washington Tacoma (Urban Studies)

TH8.00.02 Inclusive Green Spaces: Lessons From Environmental Justice Research
Public spaces, such as watersheds, community gardens, parks, and open space often explicitly or implicitly exclude people. The utopian ideal is that public spaces are enjoyed by all—but often low-income people, people of color, persons experiencing homelessness, and persons with disabilities are unable to access public and green spaces. There are perceived and real physical and cultural barriers. These public places are often regulated by local government, nearby homeowners try to restrict their use, the physical terrain does not allow persons with disabilities to visit, or programming and signage are not translated into various languages. This panel of urbanists with diverse backgrounds in planning, urban design, community organizing, social practice art, research, and teaching explores the question of how can green spaces be more inclusive? We will examine research on how the revitalization of the Los Angeles River is grappling with issues of gentrification, and how a grassroots arts-based community development approach can promote a more equitable outcome for long-standing ethnic communities along the river. Another example analyzes how community gardens throughout California have transformed neighborhoods physically and socially, and these gardens can be agents of grassroots organizing, economic empowerment, and food justice. Another project focuses on access to parks and green space in underserved communities across the Los Angeles area through an empirical analysis of a regional survey funded by the National Park Service. The final research project draws from specific U.S. and international projects to propose recommendations on how public and private spaces can be more green, inclusive, and artistic through spatial activism and creative urban design. Broad lessons from the panelists’ work will illustrate how various forms of environmental justice can affect diverse communities at multiple scales.

TH8.00.14 Preempting Local Authority: Legal, Fiscal, and Health Implications
Preemptive state legislation is challenging local ordinances across a wide range of policy areas. Conflicts over higher minimum wage, LGBT anti-discrimination ordinances, and sanctuary city laws have garnered the most attention, but these conflicts are representative of a larger trend. This session provides a current account of state preemptive legislation, highlighting research in the legal arena, fiscal affairs, service delivery, and public health. Representatives from national research teams studying state preemptions and from the National League of Cities and the National Association of Counties will discuss the trends and concerns of cities and counties.


The legal scholarship on anti-urbanism in American federalism explores how a constitutional system overtly dedicated to the principles of devolution can be so hostile to the exercise of municipal power. From a fiscal standpoint, states are preempting local authority to raise revenue and control expenditures, including the regulation of traditional franchises. State legislatures also are using preemption to block local governments from implementing policies that can improve public health. Historically, state laws set minimum standards while preserving local authority to provide additional protections for the public, but now we are seeing states preempt local governments' ability to regulate emerging market sectors and address equity and public health concerns.


Given these contrasting applications of state preemptions, a more nuanced approach to preemption is needed, as are new conceptual frameworks for understanding when preemption is likely to help or hinder the advancement of local democracy and equity. Speakers will present frameworks for understanding how preemption is occurring in the legal, fiscal, service delivery, and health arenas. We will investigate the causes and consequences of preemption across the fifty states and explore potential responses by scholars, activists, and local officials.

TH8.00.17 Interdisciplinary Approaches to Los Angeles and Pacific Rim Cities: Projects and Lessons From the UCLA Urban Humanities Initiative
The Urban Humanities Initiative is an interdisciplinary urban studies educational program that has existed at UCLA for the past six years (2013-2019), bringing together graduate students from Architecture, Urban Planning, the Humanities, and Social Sciences to learn, engage with, and intervene in the Asia-Pacific megacity through both research and practice. Each program year creates a cohort of 24 diverse scholars and practitioners to study Los Angeles in relation to another city (Tokyo, Shanghai, Mexico City) for an academic year, with fieldwork and collaborative projects occurring in each city. Urban Humanities occurs in tandem with participants’ home program (PhD and professional Master’s), creating an open, non-disciplined space for intellectual cross-pollination and learning about the city. This session highlights graduates from multiple years of the program who will discuss their educational experience and how it has influenced their subsequent work. Each speaker will present reflections from the year they participated, with an overview of major themes  as well as specific examples from both LA and the other city. There will be representatives from each city-specific year of the program and these are highlighted in the speaker list. The speakers will then present a current project that was influenced by methods or practices that were learned from Urban Humanities. These projects include dissertation work, artistic practice, professional projects, and teaching, and encompass different media types. The goal is to share with conference participants different strategies for learning and engaging with the city that have worked within Urban Humanities, and invite a larger discussion on the interdisciplinary pedagogy that has emerged from the participants collective work. We welcome teachers and practitioners who are interested in experimenting with new ways to get students to engage with the city.

TH8.00.10 Writing About Place and Significance
Panelists will discuss writing about cities from historical and social-scientific perspectives for diverse readerships. The richness of specificity highlighted in historical writing is often in tension with the demand for generalizability in the social sciences. In Q&A format, lead by the chair and including the audience, seasoned editors will discuss how book projects are conceptualized, researched, and written with place and significance in mind. Drawing from their experience, the editors will offer expert guidance for authors taking historical, social scientific, and mixed methods approaches.

TH9.40.01 “Contesting Capital and Claiming Rights to the City: Immigrant and Marginalized Workers’ Community Organizing Movements”
The rise of neoliberalism as the dominant form of political economic organization since the 1980s was the result of a confluence of economic, political, and ideological strategies that mobilized the state power a major actor on behalf of international corporate capital. Much of the literature on neoliberal restructuring has demonstrated the key role of the state in promoting and justifying not only economic changes but also in the reconfiguration of urban household and communities, completely reconfiguring the political and spatial landscapes of major metropolitan regions.

State supported market-based institutional policies, practices and ideologies have influenced the patterns of development of these urban center in virtually every realm of quotidian experience, ranging from income, housing, transportation, education, health, environment, among others. One of the key elements from the initial stages of this neoliberal agenda has been the assault on workers and unions that has taken different forms and occurred in different societal registers, and resulted in greater levels of precariousness for an increasing percentage of workers. But there has also been a major resurgence in social movements and forms of community organizing that contest the hegemony of neoliberal regimes.

This colloquy highlights the research program developed by the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment that focuses on the theoretically grounded, empirical studies of worker political projects and movements primarily, but not exclusively, in California. Each of the speakers will focus on different aspects of that research agenda, including a unique set of strategies for teaching students that incorporate them in the research projects, the historical background and emergence of what has been labelled the “LA school of community organizing.

TH9.40.15 Pushing the Boundaries of Regional Infrastructure: The Los Angeles Region in Focus
This colloquy provides an advance introduction to the Regional Studies Association Research Network on Infrastructural Regionalism (NOIR) that is scheduled to launch in late-2019. NOIR is fundamentally concerned with exploring how we study, and thus produce knowledge of, infrastructure: how are decisions on infrastructures are made, and what are their impacts on communities? What types of infrastructure are more amenable to/successful at the regional scale? How do infrastructure issues shape regional imaginaries and interpolate regional political subjects? This panel will situate and problematize the Network’s key questions and concepts by interrogating regional infrastructures in the large and complex Los Angeles region. The UAA conference location offers a fascinating and unique opportunity to use the metropolitan region’s rich experience and varied assets – from global ports and local transport through mega-project financing and governance to environmental infrastructures under climate change – as a springboard to examine the intersection of infrastructure and regional studies. Panelists include scholars and practitioners who work on questions of infrastructure in southern California. They will offer diverse perspectives on a series of questions that challenge preconceptions about the practice and theory of the infrastructures which constitute U.S. city-regions. The panel will anchor their remarks using specific examples from the LA region, but also reflect on the case of LA to open a broader interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral dialogue on how the funding, governance, and spatiality of infrastructure can promote urban, economic, and ecological sustainability at the regional scale.

TH9.40.16 Mayor de Blasio and the Potential and Limits of “Progressive” Municipal Governments
Given the conservative policy tilt of the current federal government and a significant majority of state governments, organizers and activists have increased their efforts to realize progressive or left political ends at the local scale. This is not a new phenomenon and cities have often been the sites of struggles for more just societies. But the current context requires an examination of the issues raised by progressive efforts at the local scale.


This colloquy brings together scholars active in New York City to examine the politics and policies of the “progressive” government of Bill de Blasio. Reaching office in 2014, before the Trump election in 2016 and the subsequent rightward lurch of national politics, de Blasio campaigned on reducing the dramatic inequalities in the city. It was an unabashedly “progressive” platform. This panel thus has a two-fold focus: first, what has the de Blasio administration accomplished and what factors have enabled or constrained these accomplishments? In short, how “progressive” has the mayor been and why? Second, what lessons can other progressive municipal governments around the country draw about their own policy aspirations? Can and should the efforts in New York City be exported beyond the city’s often-parochial five boroughs?

TH1.50.16 Suburban Planet
The urban century manifests itself at the peripheries. While the massive wave of present urbanization is often referred to as an 'urban revolution', most of this startling urban growth worldwide is happening at the margins of cities. This session features a panel discussion on Roger Keil’s book Suburban Planet (2017, Polity Press), which examines the process that creates the global urban periphery and the ways of life we encounter there. The book argues that suburbanization is a global process and part of the extended urbanization of the planet. This includes the gated communities of elites, the squatter settlements of the poor, and many built forms and ways of life in-between. Inspired by Henri Lefebvre's demand not to give up urban theory when the city in its classical form disappears, this book is a challenge to urban thought more generally as it invites the reader to reconsider the city from the outside in.

TH3.30.03 Struggles for Racial and Economic Justice in Educational Settings
U.S. education has always been shaped by racial considerations. Beginning in the early 1900’s urban education systems used tests created by Eugenics advocate and professor Lewis Terman to create a student sorting system. Urban schools are now governed by policies which profess racial fairness. For example, the closing of schools and the takeover of districts which do not show equal performance on tests by students of all ethnicities are said to be protecting the rights of students of color..


Urban scholars and activists have resisted this logic, arguing that instead of genuine fairness these policies are depriving urban communities of both economic resources and democratic decision making.


In this colloquy participants will examine the current educational dynamic in three specific locations, Camden, New Jersey; Oakland, California; and Stanford University, and more generally in the United States. They will be asking such questions as “What is the role of neoliberalism?” “Can and should public education be saved, given its historic racial unfairness?” “Has resistance made a difference?” "Can deep community ties turn privatizing agendas against themselves?" And “How do activism and academics intersect.” After brief presentations, participants will engage in dialogue and may create new networks.

TH3.30.06 Author Meets Critics: George Galster's Making Our Neighborhood, Making Our Selves
A range of UAA scholars will comment upon Making Our Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves, George Galster's new book from University of Chicago Press, 2019. Urban theorists have tried for decades to define exactly what a neighborhood is. But behind that daunting existential question lies a much murkier problem: never mind how you define them—how do you make neighborhoods productive and fair for their residents? In Making Our Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves, George Galster delves deep into the question of whether American neighborhoods are as efficient and equitable as they could be—socially, financially, and emotionally—and, if not, what we can do to change that. Galster aims to redefine the relationship between places and people, promoting specific policies that reduce inequalities in opportunity housing markets and beyond. Drawing on economics, sociology, geography, and psychology, Making Our Neighborhoods, Making Our Selves delivers a clear-sighted explanation of what neighborhoods are, how they come to be—and what they should be.

TH3.30.13 South-South Dialog: Agenda for Collaboration between India and Latin America
Cities in India and in Latin America are growing rapidly and facing similar challenges. Polarization of wealth and capabilities, lack of affordable housing, informality, environmental degradation and stifled mobility have become common aspects of everyday life. Amidst these issues local governments are often found operating clumsily between market pressures and populist policies. Meanwhile institutions and practices become oriented increasingly towards 'world city' competition eschewing the needs of local communities.

There have also been successes, which stand out, because they have been achieved despite chronic shortages and inefficiencies. Studying and celebrating urban success in these regions could become the basis for a creative and optimistic outlook towards a shared vision for our urban future,

The two regions are also comparable in terms of democratic attitudes, development of institutions of governance, and a commitment to tolerance and multi-ethnic urbanism. So we have two regions that face similar problems, and also must find solutions within similar polities. Therefore this dialog is a key component of South-South cooperation.

The objective of scholarly exchange between the two regions is not only to create cities that are more just and sustainable, but also to understand our roles as subjects and agents within various global regimes. Not least, it is expected that this partnership can lead to the advancement of language and theory with which urban socio-spatial formations can be better described and analyzed.

This session brings together scholars from the two regions with the aim of setting the agenda and establishing a roadmap for further collaboration.

TH3.30.15 Author Meets Critics: Latino Mayors: Political Change in the Postindustrial City
This panel will examine the new book, Latino Mayors: Political Change in the Postindustrial City. The election and governance of Latino mayors. Because Latinos were almost invisible in post-World War II municipal politics, few urban scholars predicted their ascendency to the city’s highest office. Although their numbers have increased over the past 30 years, we know little about the rise of Latino mayors, the paths they have taken to the mayoralty, their governance experience once elected, and how their mayoralties have affected the communities they represent.

Breakfast Roundtable Discussion Summary (MAXIMUM LENGTH: 300 words maximum or 2000 characters). *: This breakfast roundtable will present perspectives from a group of academics from across the US on the topic of livable communities. The development of such communities is becoming an important part of community development, urban design, policy planning and urban affairs. With the desire by urban scholars throughout N. America and Europe to move from communities that are often described as sterile and boring places to live, it is important to understand the factors that make communities livable. This roundtable will discuss what has gone wrong in many communities and will offer suggestions for making them more livable. Moreover, the discussion will focus on rethinking the meaning of livable communities.

Various topics will be discussed, including the appropriate mixture of theory and real-world application acceptable in a classroom setting.

FR7.15.05 The Urban Public Affairs Internship: Successes, Challenges, and Lessons Learned
Engaging university students in public affairs has never been more important. This Breakfast Roundtable comes 20 years after Brooklyn College Professor Edward T. Rogowsky invited UAA colleagues to consider the value of internships through his experience with the City University of New York (CUNY) Internship Program. Two participants in the 1998 UAA Roundtable return to share their ongoing experiences with the CUNY Internship Program—renamed in honor of the late Ed Rogowsky in 2001. The Rogowsky Internship Program in Government and Public Affairs has since expanded experiential learning opportunities for CUNY students. Current Program Director, Dr. Anthony Maniscalco, and John Jay College Professor Janice Bockmeyer, a campus faculty internship liaison, share more than two decades of experience with urban internships. Participants are invited to discuss the potential of undergraduate and graduate-level internship programs to introduce students to public affairs, political activism, and careers in public service. The Roundtable will provide opportunities for UAA colleagues to exchange lessons learned from university-based internships, as well as explore ways to activate new experiential learning programs in public affairs.

FR8.00.03 Los Angeles Dis(Place)ment
Like so many cities across the globe, Los Angeles is experiencing massive shifts in population and who has the right to the city. In South LA, for example, the decline of black homeowners represents not only a loss of housing but also of home and longtime community and neighborhood Through a racial and spatial analysis, this Colloquy focuses on individual and community relationships to place and examines the social, economic, and political “disruptions” that have driven development patterns and community development over time. In response to racialized land and property laws, investment, disinvestment, economic restructuring, racial uprisings, individual and community level strategies illustrate resistance as well as visions for new forms of development.

While increasing research on gentrification and displacement focuses on regional and local levels, through this Colloquy we invite a discussion about the complexity of gentrification and displacement at the individual, community, and neighborhood scales. This discussion seeks to clarify the challenges of anchoring and unifying individuals as well as a broader community in place. The impact of gentrification and displacement at these micro, meso, and spatial levels centers the realities and experiences of individuals and communities most negatively impacted by the process of gentrification and displacement and provides openings for exploring various strategies for lifting up stories toward an organized force in shaping development.

How are scholars, activists, and organizers from across Los Angeles anticipating, understanding, and resisting the erasure and displacement accompanying gentrification? What sources of “evidence” are they utilizing? How are they learning from or rejecting lessons from other spaces, places, and times? How are they relating to one another?

FR8.00.10 Charitable Adaptation: Private Philanthropy and Planning for Local Climate Change Adaptation
In recent years, private philanthropic foundations have come to play a central role in shaping local climate change adaptation planning in cities around the world. Prominent examples of philanthropically funded adaptation planning include the Rockefeller Foundation’s international 100 Resilient Cities program and the Kresge Foundation’s work with cities across the United States. At a smaller scale, local foundations have been central to adaptation planning efforts throughout the country, from New Orleans to San Diego to Boston. The rise in philanthropically funded local adaptation planning comes in the context of recent growth in private philanthropy and sharply limited public funding for local and state adaptation efforts. While private foundations have been lauded for enabling innovations across a range of sectors, critical observers have raised concerns that growth in private philanthropy may undermine public institutions and widen socio-economic inequality. This colloquy centers on three related questions: First, why have private philanthropies come to play such a prominent role in the arena of local climate adaptation planning? Second, what opportunities and limitations may come with their influence? And third, to what extent are concerns about the role of private philanthropic activity in weakening public institutions and maintaining or augmenting inequality relevant in local adaptation planning? To address these questions, the colloquy participants will include experts from a range of sectors discussing their experiences and research in cities where private philanthropies have been central to recent or ongoing climate adaptation planning.

FR9.40.03 Race, Research and the New Politics of Zoning
The history of zoning practices aimed at excluding people of color from neighborhoods of opportunity is well-documented. While explicitly racist zoning practices have been outlawed, the legacy of racial residential segregation that these policies left behind, coupled with ongoing practices (such as exclusionary zoning), continue to create a separate and unequal landscape in US cities. Today, there is a resurgence of academic research documenting the harms of overly restrictive local zoning across a broad range of issues – from climate resilience to worker mobility and economic productivity. And policymakers at all levels of government and political stripes now recognize that local land use restrictions impede progress in solving our nation’s growing affordable housing crisis. However, these “new” critiques often fail to incorporate a racial equity lens, often by design. This panel will explore two critical questions: 1) How can research on the social and economic effects of local land use regulations better incorporate a racial equity lens?; and 2) What would it take to forge new political coalitions to fight for local zoning reforms that improve racial equity and access to opportunity?

FR11.10.03 Fifty Years After the Fair Housing Act: The Causes and Consequences of Segregation, and the Bold Policy Agenda Needed to Solve it
Since 1968, the Fair Housing Act has served as a critical tool for dismantling the structures that divide people in the U.S. into separate and unequal neighborhoods. Despite the gains won with the act, the U.S. still remains segregated along the lines of race, ethnicity, and social class. This session will focus on solutions that can contribute to making the United States a country where people live together in neighborhoods that are racially and economically diverse. Drawing on insights from the recently published book Facing Segregation: Housing Policy Solutions for a Stronger Society (11.01.18), speakers will discuss key points in the history of segregation and provide frames for understanding its evolving role in the twenty-first century, including segregation’s effects on health outcomes, educational attainment, rates of employment, and civic engagement. Comments will include critiques of policies implicated in maintaining segregation, specific policy alternatives for reform of both federal efforts and local strategies, and the impact of efforts by the Trump administration to roll back key Obama-era fair housing policies. During the discussion, audience members will be challenged to consider (or reconsider) their own strategies to reduce segregation.

FR2.05.01 Shaking Up the Idea of “Progressive Planning”: The Case of the Radical Planning Escuelita
Planning and urban affairs scholars are increasingly assuming roles in local communities and blending non-traditional strategies to plan with and educate communities about what planning is in the first place. Often, such engagement requires that scholars think outside the box on activities that can capture the imagination and attention of youth, families, and leaders before engaging in traditional neighborhood planning and activism. These processes create questions about what counts as planning and when is it best to begin planning with communities, especially in areas experiencing accelerating urban inequalities, such as gentrification and displacement.


Given the severe inequities and injustices experienced and produced in cities, the speakers in this session call for strategies to broaden thinking around planning and to build and support informal efforts that focus on planning education in communities.


The speakers on this panel all participated in organizing a joint community-scholar event, the Radical Planning Escuelita held in Santa Ana, CA during the spring of 2018. The event was conceived as an informal educational space where community members and local high school and university students could learn about radical planning and their "rights to the city" through workshops, action stations with activities to introduce concepts, and meeting representatives from local organizations.


Speakers will draw on insights from this event, as well as their own scholarship, teaching, and community organizing experience. Comments will also include reflections on the organization process, event challenges, and lessons learned for the future. Speakers look forward to interacting with audience members to further explore these ideas.

FR2.05.03 The Kerner Commission Fifty Years Later: What Works And New Will
Composed mostly of white, establishment men, the 1968 Kerner Commission nonetheless concluded that the nation was headed toward "two societies, one black, one white, separate and unequal." In its 2018 Fifty Year Update of the Kerner Commission, the Eisenhower Foundation concluded that the nation has made relatively little progress in reducing poverty, inequality and racial injustice. In some ways, things have gotten worse. This colloquy session examines trends over the last fifty years and summarizes the conclusions of the Kerner Fiftieth, Healing Our Divided Society. Evidence is examined on economic, education, criminal justice, housing, neighborhood development and place based policy that works -- and that does not work. There is sufficient evidence to scale up what works to significantly reduce poverty, inequality and racial injustice. Yet the Kerner Commission warned this was not possible without "new will" among the American people. Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were seeking an interracial coalition for economic justice for the poor, the working class and the middle class when they were assassinated in 1968, shortly after the Kerner Commission released its original report. As a result, the achievement of "new will" has remained elusive. The most pressing consequent need today is to link evidence based policy, communication of what works, advocacy, nonprofit management, new leadership and good government.
