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. More than 500 placemakers from different races, places and national networks participated in this dynamic peer-learning event. Participants learned successful strategies to remediate blight, promote equitable development, bolster small businesses, encourage asset growth, make places healthier, weave arts into community engagement, and much more. Keynote remarks were presented by "empowermenteur" Angela Rye and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray. Participants went to Capitol Hill to raise their voices on behalf of the communities they serve and attend the Capitol Hill forum: Closing the Racial Wealth Gap Through Tax Reform
