More about #Uptown Chats
#UptownChats were born out of the idea that Uptown residents need a place to connect to policymakers and leaders about our unique concerns, and that we are powerful when we come together to make change.
WE ACT will bring Uptown leaders to network and engage thought leaders and public officials on topics such as energy, economic development, transportation, employment, civic engagement, parks and urban planning, social justice and more.
