October 18, 3:00pm to October 19, 5:00 pm
Join us at the second Urban Markets Initiative Forum entitled, "Connecting Communities: Using Information to Drive Change." The UMI Forum 2007 will focus on how information drives change to facilitate connections and community change.
New Breakout Sessions Include:

The Urban Markets Initiative (UMI) at the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program aims to improve the quality of information available on urban communities and use it to unleash the full power of those markets while connecting them to the economic mainstream. http://www.brookings.edu/metro/umi.htm
