HCM’s Jenine Kotob Speaks at National League of Cities Summit

“Our cities say a lot about who we are as a society—both to the international community and visitors—but also as a statement to future generations. It’s critical that we think of safety not only as security and hardening, but also as well-being, equity and civic ownership.” – Jenine Kotob
