  • Text: (2) make a strong plea for job opportunities for all Americans through a combination of private and public programs. We thought you would be interested in comparing the President's statement with the goal contained in the Urban Coalition's Statement of Principles adopted at the Emergency Convocation: The President There are some half million unemployed, hard-core unemployed, in our principal cities. We just have to go and find jobs for them. I am going to call in the business- men of America and say one of two things have to happen: You have to help me go out and find jobs for these people, or we are going to have to find jobs in the Govern- ment for them and offer every one of them a job. I think that is one thing that could be done. I think that will have to be done, as ex- pensive as it is. Coalition Goal Government and business must accept responsibility to provide all Americans with opportunity to earn an adequate income. Private industry must greatly accelerate its efforts to recruit, train, and hire the hard-core unemployed. When the private sector is unable to pro- vide employment to those who are both able and willing to work, then in a free society the government must of necessity assume the responsibility and act as the employer of last resort or must assure adequate income for those who are unable to work. The press interpreted the President's statement as an important new policy position on the government's responsibility. At a press con- ference the following day, Rep. Carl D. Perkins (Ky.), chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee said he would support whatever bill in the field of employment the President sends to Congress next year. said, Providing jobs for those who can't find private employment, he "is the proper role for government". EDUCATIONAL DISPARITIES Despite bad weather that closed the Detroit airport for several hours on December 18, seven members of the Educational Disparities Task Force were able to get together for a scheduled meeting. They held a spirited discussion of the problems which exist in this area and began concentration on those which they felt the Coalition could effectively combat. The Task Force will meet again at 2:30 p.m. on January 8 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington. LOCAL COALITIONS Encouragement and assistance in the formation of local urban coali- tions continues to receive high priority. During December Washington (3) D. C., Boston, Baltimore, Plainfield, N. J., Stanford and Bridgeport, Connecticut announced plans for local coalitions. Washington Mayor Walter E. Washington said in a public announcement that citizens have called for the organization of a local coalition "in terms of urgency" generated by the August Emergency Convocation. He emphasized that the local effort must have the support and parti- cipation of the Virginia and Maryland suburbs. The next regional mobilization conference will be held in New York City on January 12 -- at New York University's Loeb Center. EQUAL HOUSING Plans are in progress for a National Action Session on Equal Housing Opportunities to be held in Chicago at the Conrad Hilton Hotel on January 18. The Task Force has concentrated on the completion of program development papers. COMMUNICATION AND PUBLIC SUPPORT Two well-illustrated publications are in the works and will soon be mailed to those interested in the work of the Coalition. The first is a report, including the texts of major addresses, on the Mobiliza- tion Conference held in Chicago on October 17. The second will be a similar publication reporting on the Private Employment Conference held in Atlanta on December 13. HOUSING, RECONSTRUCTION AND INVESTMENT Progress continued on the major working paper being prepared by the Task Force as a guide for the Coalition in the development of a long-range program. STEERING COMMITTEE Unavoidable scheduling problems for several of the principals on the Steering Committee resulted in a postponement of the meeting scheduled for December 18 in Detroit to January 8 in Washington, D. C. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Mayflower Hotel.

  • Text: MINUTES OF THE COMMITTEE ON BUDGET AND FINANCE DECEMBER 7, 1967 New York City, N. Y. The Committee met in New York City at 2 East 37th Street at 2 P.M., December 7, 1967. Present were Mr. Asa Spaulding, Chairman, and Mr. Theodore Schlesinger. Mayor Jerome Cavanagh was unable to attend because of severe weather. Staff members present included Mr. Ron Linton, Mr. John Feild and Mr. Alfred Eisenpreis. The Chairman opened the meeting by asking for a general review of the progress being made by the Coalition and the public response to its efforts. The staff and the Committee then discussed recent activities of the Task Forces on Local Coalitions, Private Employment, Communications and Housing. In reviewing the financial report the question was raised concern- ing the status of the unpaid pledges and the likelihood of their being received. The staff reported that while there had been some delay, the outlook appeared favorable and it was hoped that the projected income would be realized by the end of January. Mr. Schlesingex asked for clarification regarding the relation- ship between the Urban Coalition and Urban America and the staff reported that they were now completely separate organizations although the earlier relationship had been one of close coopera- tion between Urban America, the U. S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities in bringing the Coalition into being. The Committee next turned to the question of future organization in order to evaluate the tentative future budget prepared by the staff. The staff reported on the current discussions, concerning future organization and indicated that major decisions would have to be made by the Steering Committee concerning this in the immediate future. In view of this, Mr. Schlesinger proposed and Mr. Spaulding agreed that it would be more appropriate for the Committee at this stage to recommend an interim budget than to attempt any recommendations concerning an annual budget. Accordingly, the committee agreed to recommend to the Steering Committee an interim budget for a three month period beyond January 31 at a minimum level of $50,000 with the same controls and procedures guiding the operations in order that the Coalition may complete its further organization during this period. This will enable the Steering Committee to take into account the recommendations of the various Task Forces and to make some judg- ments concerning the scope of the program. The committee indicated it could comment that the projected budget prepared by the staff appeared to be reasonable, and could be adjusted upward or downward depending upon the decisions made by the Steering Committee concerning organization.

  • Text: December 11, 1967 MEMORANDUM TO: Members of the Steering Committee Urban Coalition FROM: John Gunther, U. S. Conference of Mayors Chairman, Working Committee on Organization SUBJECT: The Urban Coalition in 1968 Your Working Committee on Organization met and based on that meeting and subsequent discussions with individual members of the Working Committee, I submit this report. 1. The Urban Coalition should antinue its efforts toward assur- ing an equitable share of the benefits from the nation's economy for the residents of our central cities. The Urban Coalition should be responsive to but independent of the individual elements of it. The Coalition should seek to facilitate the implementation of policies developed by it and others and con- curred in by the Coalition. Areas of substantive concern should be education, employment, and housing, including related community facilities and services. The Coalition should encourage the formation of local coalitions to develop and implement plans for the solution of community problems. The National Coalition, through local coalitions and by direct action, should support policies to order private and public priorities to meet the pressing and long neglected needs of the central cities. 2. The Steering Committee is the governing body of the Coalition and it may add to its number as it deems appropriate. The Steering Committee shall select its chairman or co-chairmen from its members and shall determine the substance of the areas of the Coalition activities, establish a budget and employ a National Coordinator. 3. There shall be a Council of Local Coalitions. This Council will be made up of two representatives from each local coalition and it shall select two of its members to serve on the national Steering Committee. The Council will serve in an advisory capacity to the Steering Committee. 4. Each member of the Steering Committee may designate an individual to represent him on the Working Committee. The Working Committee shall select a chairman or co-chairman from its members, and may establish committees as needed to oversee the implementation of decisions by the Steering Committee, and pre- pare proposals for the consideration of the Steering Committee. 5. Areas of Coalition activity will be explored in depth by task forces established by the Steering Committee and responsible to the Steering Committee. 6. The Coalition shall employ such staff as its budgeted resources permit. The staff will be under the direction of a National Coordinator who may be retained and serve at the pleasure of the Steering Committee. The staff will provide services as necessary to the Steering Committee, the Council of Local Coalitions, the task forces and the Working Committee. 7. Staffing and funding should be planned on a one-year basis; and prior to January 1, 1969, a comprehensive review should be made to asses progress toward the objectives of the Urban Coalition and to make such recommendatiors as may be appropriate for its continu- ation.

C. | 20006 Steering Committee Co-chairmen: Andrew Heiskell / A, Philip Randolph March 8, 1968 LEGISLATIVE REPORT SENATE HEARINGS ON HOUSING BILL CUT SHORT BY CIVIL RIGHTS DEBATE: Senator John Sparkman's (D-Ala.) Banking and Currency Housing Subcommittee opened hearings March 5 on the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (S.3029 and H.R. 15624) but important votes on civil rights legislation kep the Subcommittee from hearing anyone other than HUD Secretary Robert Weaver. Sena- tors quizzed Weaver on whether or not the proposed bill would meet the needs of low income families. Weaver suggested the President's 10-year program was designed to do the job and he believed the Riot Commissions proposal to accomplish the goal in only five years was unrealistic. Hearings begin be- fore the House Banking and Currency Committee's Housing Sub- committee (Barrett, D-Pa., Chrmn.) OEO SUMMER FUNDS APPROVED BY SENATE COMMITTEE: The Senate Appropriations Committee has reported the 1968 Supplemental Appropriations bill for floor action with the inclusion of $75 million for OEO summer activities. No problem is expect- ed in securing Senate approval. The real difficulties will be encountered in the House. CLARK SUBMITS EMERGENCY EMPLOYMENT TRAINING BILL: Senator Joseph Clark (D-Pa.) has introduced a bill to provide jobs and job training in both public and private sectors for 2.4 million hard-core unemployed during the next four years. The bill, S.3063, is similar to Senator Clark's emergency employ- ment amendment to last year's OEO legislation which was narrowly defeated. It puts in legislative language the job opportunities in the business section (JOBS) program announced by President Johnson in his State of the Union and manpower messages. Last year the Urban Coalition led attempts to get Senate approval of the provision for public sector jobs. National Coordinators: John Feild / Ron M. Linton Telephone 293-7530 Sw

  • Text: MINUTES March llth Meeting Page 4 Committee members, the Committee endorsed the proposal. (The statement of the Urban Coalition Executive Committee with regard to an OEO supplemental appropriation was sent as an attachment to the last National Coordinator's Weekly Report). The final legislative item considered was the need for further action this Spring to support the passage by Congress of appro- priate legislation creating a public service employment program as called for in the Coalition's Statement of Principles, Goals, and Commitments. It was pointed out that a bill for this purpose had been recently introduced by Senator Joseph Clark (D-Pa.) and that similar bills were expected shortly from Rep. James O'Hara (D-Mich.) and Senator Jacob Javits (R-NY). The Committee then unanimously agreed to a restatement to the public of the Coalition's position on public service employment as previously expressed in a September statement supporting the then-pending Clark-Javits bill. (This statement was also an attachment to the last Weekly Report). Discussion then ensued concerning the possibility of a comprehen- Sive public statement to be released by Chairman Gardner speaking for the Executive Committee covering housing, employment and the OEO supplemental appropriation. After considerable discussion, it was agreed that the Chairman should issue as soon as possible a comprehensive statement combining the three separate documents agreed upon by appending a single page summar (Summary was sent as attachment to last Weekly Report). The next item of business considered was the report of the Presi- dent's Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders. Mayor John Lindsay Shared with the Committee his perspective on the report as Co- Chairman of the Advisory Commission. After hearing from Mayor Lindsay and after a brief discussion, the Committee unanimously voted to go on record as strongly endorsing the Commission report. (A statement endorsing the report was attached to the last Weekly Report). The final action taken by the Executive Committee was to set April 8th as the date of the next meetings of the Executive Committee and of the Steering Committee. Both meetings will be in Washing- ton--the Executive Committee meeting at 2:00 p.m. (to further con- sider the organizational plans of Chairman Gardner) and the Steer- ing Committee meeting at 4:00 p.m. (to receive the recommendations of the Executive Committee). Chairman Gardner adjourned the meeting at 6:55 p.m.

Javits~Yarborough Bill Would Increase OEO Funds: Senators Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.) and Ralph Yarborough (D-Texas) introduced a bill last week to tack $150 million for OEO onto a FY 1968 supplemental appro- priations bill already passed by the House. Javits, along with Senators Edward Brooke (R-Mass.) and Fred Harris (D-Okla.) also testified in support of the measure, as did Mayor John Lindsay of New York. The Committee will meet in executive session Monday, March 4 to decide whether or not to add the extra funds. Attached is a fact sheet prepared before the Javits-Yarborough measure was introduced which gives further insight into the need for a supple- mental appropriation. HUD-Agriculture Cooperation Proposed for Rural Development: The President's farm message (February 27) reveals a move to settle de- bate over responsibility for federal urban development programs in rural areas. Apparently Agriculture will not be permitted to expand its own kit of community development programs, but will coordinate other agency programs in the country's more rural areas. HUD, for example, will enter into agreements with Agriculture for Agriculture to administer certain HUD programs in rural areas in accordance with HUD standards. Similar arrangements will be developed between Agriculture and other agencies. The message called for increased federal assistance in providing housing and employment in rural areas. It recommended reducing interest rates and expanding eligibility for rural housing loan programs and insuring that rent supplements are available outside urban areas. It also provided for credit programs and construction loans for firms locating in rural regions, and a broadened job train- ing. Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968: Legislation to implement the President's Cities Message was introduced February 26 and 27: §.3029 (Sparkman, D-Ala.) and H.R.15624 (Patman, D-Texas).

  • Text: January 3, 1968 MEMORANDUM TOs The Steering Committee FROM: The Task Force on Local Coalitions The Emergency Convocation, held in August, appealed to communities across the country to form counterpart local coalitions. This appeal was predicated on the knowledge that achievement of the goals adopted by The Urban Coalition is dependent upon the degree to which active support for those goals develops in a significant number or urban communities. The Urban Coalition also recognized that merely issuing an appeal for formation of local coalitions would not be sufficient. The Task Force on Local Coalitions was created to assist communities in establishing coalitions. As of December 31, 1967, nineteen local coalitions had been created. A minimum of ten more and possibly as many as twenty may be formed in January 1968. An organizing committee, to prepare for convening the newly authorized National Council of Urban Coalitions, is scheduled to meet in Washington on January 29, 1968, at the Mayflower Hotel. The response to the Convocation call for counterpart coalitions was overwhelming, measured by the volume of requests from com- munity leadership across the country for organizing and program- ming assistance. The number of such requests was beyond the capacity of the small national coordinating staff to service. The decision was therefore made to convene three regional conferences for community leadership interested in mobilizing coalitions. To date, two such conferences have been held, one in Chicago, in October, and a second in San Francisco, the end of November. The aggregate attendance at these two meetings represented over ninety different cities in the west and mid-west. A third conference for the eastern part of the country will be held on January 12th in New York City. Page Two Report to the Steering Committee Our second approach to assisting communities is in the form of Guidelines, which have been carefully developed by a Task Force working group and the coordinating staff. The Guidelines, a copy of which was recently sent to each of you, have now been printed in pamphlet form. The pamphlet will serve not only to explain the nature and purpose of The Urban Coalition, but to counsel community leadership on possible approaches to community mobilization. The need for action task forces as the working arms of local coalitions has been stressed both in the planning conferences and the Guidelines. As these local task forces emerge, mutual benefit will result from working relationships with the counter- part national task forces. Once the regional conference schedule has been completed, the task force will meet to evaluate progress to date and to map plans for future action. We expect to intensify efforts to stimulate organizing efforts in specific communities in many of which mayoralty campaigns, this fall, precluded coalition formation. In effect, this means a shift from a wholesale to a retail approach which will have to be selective because of the very limited staff and funds now available. However, we anticipate assistance in these mobilization efforts from all those organizations and constituencies represented on the Steering Committee and, importantly, from the ranks of already operative local urban coalitions.

  • Text: January 3, 1968 ORGANIZATIONAL PROPOSAL INTRODUCTION The Steering Committee of the Urban Coalition will decide January 8 the future nature of the Coalition. Essential to this is a decision on the organizational structure to be utilized for reaching Coalition goals. Currently, the Urban Coalition is an ad hoc steering committee loosely related to some 1,200 individuals who attended the August Convocation. The Steering Committee has spawned seven task forces and created a small professional staff which serves the task forces under the di- rection of two national coordinators. Functionally, there are two elements comprising Coalition activities. One is catalytic and the other is direct action. These two elements must be reconciled in the organizational structure. PROPOSAL It is proposed that two companion structures be created: one to con- duct the direct action activities, the second to undertake the cata- lytic role. Catalytic Structure The organizational structure of the catalytic element would be a non-profit corporation directed by a Board of Governors. It would have a moderate service and support staff headed by an executive director. The task forces of the present Steering Committee would become the program committees of the non-profit corporation. The objectives of this organization would be to identify the pro- blems for which it would undertake research and study; develop solutions and program ideas; and provide resources and service to local coalitions. The organization's funding capability should be substantial enough to allow it to provide matching grants for local projects undertaken by local coalitions. This organization should be funded for at least a three or possibly five-year period at an annual rate of $5,000,000. Staff support would require approximately $500,000. The balance would be used for matching funds to local coalitions which would conduct action projects and for supporting contracts with existing organizations to do special research projects. (2) Membership on the Board of Governors would be available to all of the current members of the Steering Committee. The Board of Gover- nors would elect the officers. The president or chairman should be a person of national reputation. The Action Organization The organizational structure would be an ad hoc Steering Committee, just as now exists, with committees where required and no staff. Its funding requirements would be minimal. Staff support would come from the U. S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities. Its activities would encompass taking positions on national policy matters and making efforts to insure that the national policy deci- Sions became those of the government.

  • Text: January 3, 1968 MEMORANDUM TO: Steering Committee FROM: Task Force on Legislation SUBJECT: Legislative Program for 1968 The two major Congressional issues in the Congress this year of paramount interest to the Coalition will be: 1) The Proposed Emergency Employment Program; and 2) Housing for low and moderate income families. On the issue of the Emergency Employment Program (the Public Service Employment Program) the President has indicated that the Administration will propose appropriate legislation if adequate resources cannot be made available in private industry. Congressman Perkins of Kentucky, Chairman of the House Education Committee, promptly supported such legislation and offered to intro- duce an appropriate bill in the House of Representatives. The pro- gram being discussed is basically patterned after the recommendations made by the Coalition in its August 1967 Convocation. Senator Clark of Pennsylvania, Chairman of the Labor Committee's Subcommittee on Employment has indicated that he will reintroduce a new and improved version of the Clark-Javits-Prouty Bill which nearly passed the Senate last year. Senator Clark expects to announce hearings on the measure before the end of February. All of the major urban development programs such as public housing, urban renewal, mass transportation, etc., must be extended and anti-poverty legislation must also be refunded. Also major legislative recommendations are in the process of being formulated by the Kaiser Committee on Urban Housing. The Task Force recommends that the Coalition can most realistically expect to make itself helpful in achieving improved housing programs by deferring any action on its own until it has had a chance to study the Kaiser Committee Report. But the Coalition and its members should act immediately to marshall support for an Emergency Employment program as endorsed by the August Convention. This can be done most effectively by commu- nicating support for such legislation to members of Congress. Chair- man Perkins should be encouraged to introduce an appropriate bill. All Senators should be urged _to join Senator Clark as a co-sponsor for the Clark-Javits-Prouty Bill.

Allen, President, McGraw-Hill Publications and Co-Chairman, Task Force on Communications and Public Support of The Urban Coalition SUBJECT: Meeting of Public Relations Representatives, March 8, 1968, New York City As you know, the members of the Steering Committee of The Urban Coalition have provided fine leadership in the Coalition's efforts to stimulate national action on the problems of the cities. We feel that the public relations directors of the organizations represented on the Steering Committee--or people who sometimes act in a public relations capacity--can make a meaningful contri- bution to this great effort. We think you will also find it help- ful to be fully informed about Coalition activities. You are invited to attend a meeting planned exclusively for the public relations people at the Time-Life Building, Rockefeller Center, New York City, on March 8th. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. in the 8th floor auditorium. Following the session, Time- Life will host a social hour and buffet supper. John W. Gardner has advised me that he plans to attend the meeting. This will afford us the opportunity to discuss with him the present and future activities of the Coalition. We will appreciate hearing at an early date whether you can be with us. Please leave word with Mrs. Marcia Greene at the Coalition office (202/293-1530). National Coordinators: John Feild / Ron M. Linton Telephone 293-7530
