Registration is now open for the second annual New York State Neighborhood Revitalization Conference at http://nyneighborhoods.org on Saturday, September 21st, at Russell Sage College
Billed as “Sharing, Solving, Strategizing for the Future,” it will host statewide neighborhood organizers in a day of idea sharing, problem solving, and strategizing for the future of New York’s communities. Neighborhood activists, educators, business people, and elected officials will gather to share successes at various workshops in order to develop and maintain healthy and vibrant communities throughout Upstate New York. Organizers believe that the strength of our past and the diversity of our people, cultures and businesses will make our neighborhoods destinations to live, work and visit.
The keynote speaker is Vincent DeSantis, a thought leader in urban revitalization, city court judge, activist and author of the highly regarded book, Toward Civic Integrity: Re-establishing the Micropolis.
The registration fee is $25. Discounts are available for students and low-income people. Apply today at http://nyneighborhoods.org.
