We welcome support from diverse organizations and hope to use this as a way to build lasting partnerships around critical issues facing legacy cities. Financial support will allow us to assist with travel for participants, helping to broaden the conversation to a national scale and increase the impact of the event across the Great Lakes region and beyond.
