Undoing the social contract of the ‘60s
The social and political tumult of the 1960s brought a new social contract for subsidized health care, the environment and energy dependence. Policymakers, researchers, journalists and philanthropic leaders will discuss shifts in those policies at the 2015 Urban Forum Sept. 17.
The free annual event will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the UIC Forum. Co-chairs are Toni Preckwinkle, Cook County board president, Terry Mazany, president and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust and Chancellor Michael Amiridis. Michael Pagano, dean of the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, is program director.
This year’s Urban Forum is sponsored by the MacArthur Foundation, WBEZ 91.5 and The Chicago Community Trust.
