U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton visited NYU Wagner on April 23 to speak about urban poverty. The audience of invited guests included current and former government officials, educators, and the heads of labor unions, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations. Introduced by Wagner Professor Rogan Kersh, the senator explored such issues as the growth of the prison population, unemployment, education, family, health care, and middle class security. Entitled the 'Working Cities Forum', and moderated by WNBC-TV political correspondent Jay DeDapper, the event was one of an ongoing series of conversations with presidential candidates cosponsored by the Community Service Society of New York and 32BJ Service Employees International Union. A transcript of the senator's comments is to be posted on the organizations' web sites.
