Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka sits down with former Democratic Congressman Barney Frank for an intimate conversation through the lens of progressive politics.

Currently serving his third term, Mayor Baraka continues his push for creative initiatives to bolster the city of Newark’s safety, economy and culture. Originally from Bayonne, NJ, long-serving Congressman Frank is known for his rapid-fire wit and his pro-choice and pro-civil rights voting record. He made history as the first openly gay member of Congress, and for having the first same-sex marriage while in office.

These two New Jersey natives will discuss the new Congress, the future of our American cities, and the ultimate question: Where do we go from here? There is limited seating for this free event, so please RSVP.
