Barack Obama visited the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University on July 25, 2007 to discuss his ideas about reducing poverty, extending health care coverage widely, and reaching disconnected youth. The event was the Working Cities Forum, a leadership forum on the working poor sponsored by the nonprofit Community Service Society of New York (CSS) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The invitation-only dialogue with a major presidential candidate was the second in three months at NYU Wagner: on April 23, Hillary Rodham Clinton addressed urban issues in the same setting. On behalf of NYU President John Sexton and Wagner Dean Ellen Schall, Obama was introduced by Lynne Brown, NYU's Senior Vice President for University Relations and Public Affairs. A video of the event will be posted in the future at www.cssny.org, where Clinton's appearance can currently be viewed.
