Congressional Smart Cities Caucus to discuss 'A Movement for Inclusion to Seize 21st Century Opportunities'
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and Congressman Darrell Issa formed the bi-partisan U.S. Congressional Smart Cities Caucus earlier this year to streamline the creation of policies that accelerate smart development efforts across regions and cities of all sizes in the United States. The Smart Cities Caucus is bridging the divide between federal policy and emerging technology.
On Friday, September 14th, Rep. Yvette D. Clarke will host her panel entitled "Smart Cities and You Part II: A Movement for Inclusion to Seize 21st Century Opportunities" during CBCF's 48th Annual Legislative Conference.
During the panel, we will hear from industry experts and elected officials about opportunities in the Smart Cities space including Former FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn and the African American Mayors Association.
