The Hostos Center for Bronx Nonprofits Public Conversations Series features quarterly field-building discussions on emerging paradigms in public policy and nonprofit practice. The series seeks to highlight the innovations of Bronx practitioners and the grant making of New York-area funders--their successes as well as disappointments-- as they grapple with new challenges in communities and test pioneering approaches to longstanding public policy issues.
