Solutions for Financially Distressed Cities

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Ron Sims, Former Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Carol O’Cleireacain, former senior fellow at The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., tell us that "Detroit is not alone" in its financial woes.

The two discuss lessons learned from cities across the nation and discussions that will occur at next week's Wayne State University Law School conference.

“Detroit Bankruptcy and Beyond: Organizing for Change in Distressed Cities,” takes place April 7 and 8 at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium. It will explore lessons learned from cities in similar financial situations as Detroit.
