Additional Information:
“The United States Conference of Mayors is the official non-partisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are over 1,400 such cities in the country today. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.”- usmayors.org

"100 Mayors Who Care” is a way for Mayors to give back to the cities in which they gather for Conference meetings. The concept, first introduced by Conference President Barnett at the 2019 Fall Leadership Meeting, is simple: Mayors in attendance hear three-minute "pitches" from three Washington, DC-based non-profit service organizations. The mayors then vote for their favorite pitch and each participating mayor (or any other conference attendee wishing to do so) contributes $100 to support the work of the winning non-profit. The idea is that mayors leave meeting cities with more than the learning gained and relationships strengthened through their attendance; they also leave behind a legacy benefiting non-profits serving the cities they have visited. - usmayors.org
