"We have to work aggressively as a team to create infrastructure to harness the most beautiful thing about our country, which is human capital." – Ja'Ron Smith

Cleveland native Ja'Ron K. Smith is one of the White House’s highest ranking African-American staffers. He plays a key role in developing President Donald Trump's policies aimed at helping urban African-Americans, including efforts to stimulate economic growth in Opportunity Zones, reform the criminal justice system, and provide aid to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

Join us as Smith discusses how these policies are helping facilitate urban revitalization on a local level.
