Today we enjoyed a serious, groundbreaking conversation involving representatives from an international Fortune 500 corporation and members of our community who understand the real challenges of poverty and urban life in the inner city.
Both parties appear to be serious about the possibilities for change and renewal.
I wish you could have been in on the almost two-hour session.
I left so "pumped" that I had to debrief here.
Love to hear your reactions.
I'll keep you posted about the progress that could mean real, sustainable change in one of the tougher parts of our city, as well as across urban America since the corporation is viewing our project here as a "pilo" to be rolled out to over 20 other major urban centers.
