Charles Marohn will give a public presentation in Washington, DC, co-sponsored by The American Conservative and the Congress for the New Urbanism

The event will kick off with a reception from 5 - 6pm. Mr. Marohn will give his presentation at 6pm, followed by a Q&A.

Mr. Marohn’s presentation entitled “The Curbside Chat,” will explore why American towns and cities are financially struggling and how to create a more prosperous future that will benefit all of our communities.

How can our towns get stronger—not weaker—when our economy changes? How can we repopulate our empty streets and empty storefronts? What can we learn from the earliest days of city building about building better places tomorrow? And how can active citizens, local officials, and ordinary people make it happen today, no matter how badly we’re starting off? This presentation is your opportunity to hear Strong Towns’ answers to these questions, and to participate in a community-specific discussion about how the Strong Towns approach can improve DC and cities like it.

This event is free but registration is requested.
