Washington, DC – Today, Senator Elizabeth Warren, presidential candidate announced her commitment to the Leading Together 2020 Cities Agenda. Leading Together is the formative, nonpartisan platform from the National League of Cities that seeks to address the issues that keep America’s residents and local elected leaders up at night.
“NLC is encouraged by Senator Elizabeth Warren’s commitment to the 2020 Cities Agenda,” said NLC President Joe Buscaino, Councilmember, Los Angeles, California. “The Leading Together 2020 Cities Agenda is a snapshot of what keeps America’s residents up at night, and local leaders hope all candidates will commit to the priorities and agenda of American communities. We must drive forward partnership and progress on behalf of America’s cities, towns and villages.”
The Cities Agenda is composed of four critical issues that we can make the greatest impact on as a united nation, including Building Sustainable Infrastructure, Creating a Skilled Workforce, Ending Housing Instability and Homelessness, and Reducing Gun Violence.
