The City Futures Support the Future Gala

Join them to honor Accion New York and Carlton Brown, COO of Full Spectrum Development, with special remarks by Jimmy Breslin.

City Futures, Inc., is a nonprofit organization devoted to rethinking, reframing and invigorating the public discourse about New York City public policy and urban issues nationally. The organization is comprised of the Center for an Urban Future, a think tank that fuses journalistic reporting techniques with traditional policy analysis to produce in-depth reports and workable policy solutions on the critical issues facing cities, and City Limits, New York’s urban affairs news source, which provides the information, analysis and innovative ideas that help citizens and policymakers create a more equitable city.

Carlton Brown is an innovator and leader in green building practice as well as a committed developer of affordable housing here in New York and nationally.

Accion New York fills a critical niche and contributes to the economic development of the New York metropolitan region by providing microloans and business advisory services to individuals and small businesses that do not have access to traditional sources of credit.
