City Leadership

Building high-road cities and metropolitan regions is both good for citizens and a key way to move the national dialogue toward progressive policy solutions. Much of our work is focused on sharing high-road policy and governance with local leaders. High road policy promotes shared prosperity, environmental sustainability, and efficient democratic government.

Mayors Innovation Project

The Mayors Innovation Project (MIP) is a learning network among American mayors committed to high road policy and governance: shared prosperity, environmental sustainability, efficient democratic government.

MIP offers high-quality content that emphasizes innovative, actionable solutions, offered through formats that prioritize peer-to-peer exchange and learning.
