Webinar Explores Promise Zones

PolicyLink is hosting a webinar that will explore Promise Zones – a new place-based strategy introduced by the Obama Administration. Building on exiting efforts of the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) to combat poverty and improve outcomes for children and families, “Promise Zones” will foster partnerships between the federal government and communities, leverage local investments and increase access to tools and resource that will help leaders revitalize their communities.

This webinar will introduce this interagency effort, explore its potential for tackling complex issues, and discuss eligibility for application. Featured speakers include:
  • Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder and CEO, PolicyLink
  • Brian Smedly, Vice President and Director, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
  • Racquel Russell, Deputy Assistant to the President for Urban Affairs & Economic Mobility, White House Domestic Policy Council
  • Lisa Cylar Miller, Deputy Director, Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink
The webinar will take place on Thursday, August 22 from 12pm-1:30pm ET. Click here to register.
