Description: America's Mayors on Crisis and Change
A DEMOCRACY & DEBATE SIGNATURE EVENT sponsored by the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

This year has tested mayoral leadership like no other. Join us to learn from four leading mayors how they respond tactically to emergent crises while sustaining progress toward long-term goals.

The epidemiological and economic crises associated with the coronavirus pandemic have posed new challenges and opportunities for mayoral leadership. So has the movement for racial justice, which has intensified pressure on mayors from within and beyond their cities. Meanwhile, municipal leadership is key for long-term change on issues such as climate change, social equity, transportation, and economic opportunity.

Jointly hosted by Taubman College and U-M Poverty Solutions, the forum engages our campus-wide Democracy & Debate Theme Semester by addressing some of the most salient issues in this intense and high-stakes election season. This panel brings together U.S. mayors from across the country for a conversation that explores the agency of mayors in matters of national significance.

Participants:
Jacob Frey (Minneapolis, MN)
Lori Lightfoot (Chicago, IL)
Libby Schaaf (Oakland, CA)
Michael Tubbs (Stockton, CA)
Moderated by Taubman College Dean Jonathan Massey, with a special welcome by University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel. This event is free and open to the public.
