Local Solutions Showcased on a National Stage 

What's working to revitalize places and advance racial equity? People & Places 2017 explored local solutions with 35 sessions and 127 speakers from communities across the country plus keynote speakers "empowermenteur" Angela Rye and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray. More than 500 placemakers participated in this dynamic peer-learning event, developing a network of experts that they can access to adapt and transform solutions back home.  Placemakers headed to Capitol Hill to raise their voices on behalf of the communities they serve and attended the Capitol Hill forum, Closing the Racial Wealth Gap Through Tax Reform, featuring the Asset Building Policy Network.
