On April 26, 2023, the 24th Annual David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum at Columbia University in Harlem welcomed the Honorable Eric Adams.
Adams is the 110th Mayor of the City of New York and New York’s second African American Mayor, as its featured speaker to share his vision for our “Gorgeous Mosaic,” as David N. Dinkins famously and lovingly coined our city.
SIPA’s Dean Keren Yarhi-Milo welcomed Mayor Adams, who delivered his remarks, “Continuing the Dinkins Legacy of Public Safety,” and participated in a roundtable discussion with Michael Nutter, 98th Mayor of Philadelphia and David N. Dinkins Professor of Professional Practice in Urban & Public Affairs at SIPA, and Ester Fuchs, Professor of Political Science and Urban Social Policy at SIPA.
Since 1995, the David N. Dinkins Leadership and Public Policy Forum has addressed many of the challenging issues that successful urban ecosystems must contend with including education, the environment, labor, homelessness, immigration, and fiscal crises.
