are pleased to invite you to

Regional Solutions to Segregation and Racial Inequity:
Can Metro Areas Overcome Inequality?

The 2009 Henry Cohen Lecture

Wednesday, March 11, 2009, 6 pm to 8 pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center
55 West 13th Street (between 5th and 6th avenues), 2nd floor

Featuring Myron Orfield, Executive Director, Institute on Race & Poverty, University of Minnesota and author, Metropolitics: A Regional Agenda for Community and Stability

Suburban growth and development away from central cities have increased segregation and racial inequalities in the U.S. Using the Twin Cities region as a lens, Orfield shows why policy makers must shift from neighborhood-level responses and develop regional solutions that promote equity and integration for housing, jobs, and schools.

The lecture will be followed by a discussion about the New York region with:
Darrick Hamilton, Assistant Professor, Milano
Alex Schwartz, Associate Professor, Milano
Tom Wright, Executive Director, Regional Plan Association

Admission is free, but you must reserve a seat. To RSVP call 212.229.5418 or email centernyc@newschool.edu.

Established in 2006, The Henry Cohen Lecture focuses on public policy challenges and solutions for women, children, and families, particularly in impoverished urban settings. The Henry Cohen Professorship, which focuses on these same issues, is an endowed Chair at Milano. The Lecture and Professorship are both named after Milano's founding dean, who served from 1965 to 1983.

The Center for New York City Affairs is a nonpartisan institute dedicated to advancing innovative public policies that strengthen neighborhoods, support families and reduce urban poverty. The Center is based at
Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy.
