Washington, DC – Today, former Vice President Joe Biden announced his 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.
“Vice President Biden’s commitment to Leading Together is another prime example that federal leaders understand the value of working alongside local leaders, residents and communities to build a nation that works for all,” said Joe Buscaino, President Pro Tempore, Los Angeles City Council and President, National League of Cities. “NLC and local elected officials will continue to drive forward the 2020 Cities Agenda and uplift the priorities 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.
