The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) recently co-hosted a webinar with The Democracy Collaborative (TDC), where we had the opportunity to learn from Daniel Paul Davis, Vice President and Community Affairs Officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. During the webinar, Davis reviewed findings from the April 2020 report, Perspectives from Main Street: The Impact of COVID-19 on Communities and the Entities Serving Them. Additionally, Davis detailed other resources from the Federal Reserve that help to build an understanding of how to best invest in and support the workforce.
CUMU and TDC are appreciative of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis for collaborating with us to provide this learning opportunity for our members as we all think about how to best address the current economic crisis and plan for a strong and inclusive recovery.
