“Building Advocacy for the Middle Neighborhood Movement,” Cleveland working group in Nov. 2018

Themed “Building Advocacy for Middle Neighborhoods,” this working group meeting, held on Nov 13th-14th, 2018, will bring together the growing movement of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers dedicated to stabilizing “on the edge” neighborhoods across the country. Participants will share insights and learn about recent research efforts. The working group meeting will also provide practical information about how to mobilize support to better serve these communities.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland with support from local organizations including Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation and Cleveland Neighborhood Progress are partnering with The American Assembly on this working group meeting. Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, Neighborworks America, and National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations are supporting partners; and the George Gund Foundation is a sponsor. This meeting will take place one year after our first gathering in Baltimore, MD.
