Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

American Assembly

New York, New York



Established in 1950 by Dwight D. Eisenhower as an affiliate of Columbia University, the assembly is a nonpartisan public-affairs forum that illuminates national policy issues and formulates innovative solutions to complex problems. A two-year grant funds the launch of the Legacy Cities Network, a collaborative venture to provide civic leaders working in legacy cities with shared access to research, lessons and solutions for urban transformation.
