PAST EVENT Wednesday September 16 2020

Growing homeless encampments; spikes in crime against property and people; and, in some locales, riots and looting: These are but a few of the symptoms of disorder afflicting America’s cities, including Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago—and most recently, Kenosha. To the extent that such symptoms are the result of misguided policy decisions, what lessons should New York’s policy makers take from these cities’ mistakes? How can New York save itself from going down the same path?

On September 16th, Manhattan Institute president Reihan Salam will interview City Journal contributing editor Christopher Rufo on these and other questions. Rufo, who joined City Journal in December, has established himself as an authority on the negative consequences of sometimes well-intentioned progressive policies designed to address homelessness, opioid addiction, incarceration, and other urban problems. A filmmaker and journalist, Rufo has directed five documentaries, his most recent being, “Chaos by the Bay: The Truth About Homelessness in San Francisco,” which depicts the consequences of San Francisco’s decision to decriminalize drug use, ignore property crimes committed by the homeless, and decarcerate half of its convicted felons.
