Washington, D.C. – Today, the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) released the second episode of the new podcast, “An American Breakthrough.” The new episode, hosted by USCM President and Louisville (KY) Mayor Greg Fischer, features West Sacramento (CA) Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, Phoenix (AZ) Mayor Kate Gallego and Topeka (KS) Mayor Michelle De La Isla.
On this episode of “American Breakthrough,” mayors discussed their new “Mayors’ 2020 Vision,” a bipartisan policy agenda released this week to coincide with the opening of the first party convention of the summer. They get into timely issues like racial equity and how cities are responding to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as important solutions for climate change, health care, and job creation. The episode is available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other platforms. To subscribe, see here.
“We released an original Mayors’ ‘Vision for America’ last December. That agenda outlined 12 strategic priorities designed to help each and every American live up to their full potential. But the world has turned upside down since the release of that roadmap. The coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic shutdown have devastated communities of all sizes, just as the national movement for police reform and racial justice has gripped our nation. But with these challenges comes great opportunity to build a more just, equitable, and compassionate society. So, we went back and updated our agenda to reflect the new realities in America,” said USCM President and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.
