Infrastructure on a Human Scale - Virtual State Street Forum

Details:

Infrastructure on a Human Scale:  State Street Forum

Thursday, October 21, 12 noon-1:00 pm on ZOOM

Sponsored by the New York State Council of Churches, FOCUS Churches of Albany and Westminster Presbyterian Church


How could the two infrastructure bills before Congress right now impact our local neighborhoods and economy?

Watch the video of this online forum here - https://youtu.be/Rd0_SEa9D0M


The proposed level of investment is massive.  One bi-partisan bill calls for 1 trillion dollars of "hard" infrastructure investment for roads, bridges, public transportation, etc.  A second bill calls for over 3 trillion dollars of investment in "human" infrastructure:  childcare, elder care, affordable housing, and investment in clean energy and health care.  


Is this what our country needs to get our economy growing again?  How might local churches and people of faith weigh in on decisions about where and how this money is spent?  


Our next State Street Forum will feature Mary Clark, Regional Director for Citizen Action, who will provide insights on federal and state legislation.  We'll also hear reflections from The Reverend Phil Tom who staffs the Social Justice Commission of The Riverside Church in New York City which has been strongly involved in advocating for the Build Back Better plan. We will have plenty of time for questions and comments from all in attendance.
