Innovations in Local Leadership

Join the ACS Student Chapters Team for another installment of our 2020 Student Convention Virtual Series! This panel will feature current mayors discussing innovations in local government. Recent legal and political developments demonstrate the powerful role that cities and local governments play in our society. Whether as innovators of progressive public policy, leaders for social change, or bulwarks of resistance, cities shape the law and politics in unique ways. This panel will tell the story of progressive localities through their leaders—local mayors.


Hon. Chokwe Antar Lumumba, Mayor of Jackson, MS

Hon. Sumbul Siddiqui, Mayor of Cambridge, MA

Moderated By:

Jonathan Miller, Legal Director, Public Rights Project; Lecturer in Law, Harvard Law School

All attendees will be sent dial-in information upon registration.
