Investing In What Works For America's Communities
Reconnecting America Chief of Staff Allison Brooks will be among the speakers at an April 4 panel discussion of Ideas That Work, part of the Investing In What Works For America's Communities book project. Brooks' panel will provide on-the-ground perspectives from successful community development projects in the Los Angeles area and across the country. The programs featured reflect the book’s themes of combining people and place, integration across traditional “program areas,” collaboration across bureaucratic silos, connection of neighborhood to region, and entrepreneurship. Brooks' panel will provide the audience with solid illustrations of what makes these models successful and the challenges and opportunities to replicating and scaling these approaches.
