Join us Thursday, October 11, at 12:30 pm for a discussion with:
Leigh Graham, Assistant Professor of Public Management, John Jay College, on:
Race, Risk, and Resilience in Rockaway
The need to reconstruct the beach neighborhoods of the Rockaways, Queens, after Hurricane Sandy in 2012 brought a wide range of people and organizations together in a local participatory process. Professor Graham’s research shows how participation was affected by differences in race, economic status, and the unique set of regulations surrounding public housing.
