SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison MEMORANDUM To: Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. From: Dan Sweat Subject: Report on Urban Coalition Meeting, October 9, New York City The meeting of the Steering Committee of the National Urban Coalition developed into quite a stalemate on the question of whether or not public policy positions should be taken by the group. Most Mayors present - Lindsay, Cavanagh, Graham and perhaps Naftalin, as well as some Civil Rights, Education and Religion representatives felt the urgent necessity for the Coalition to communicate a policy position to the Congress on such pressing matters as the Welfare Amendments, Poverty Bill, etc. Business representatives, noteably Frederick Close and Gerald Phillippe, felt any policy statements issued as a Coalition on controversial legislation would jeopardize anticipated support for the Coalition by Business. They were greatly upset by the Coalition's statement on the Clark-Javits Amendment to the Poverty Bill, After a two hour debate the committee voted to adopt a policy which states: ''The Coalition shall take public policy positions except where a substantial or intense disagreement emerges," Mayor Allen Page Two October ll, 1967 What this all amounted to was a stalemate on the question of whether or not the Coalition, as an organization, will lobby for urban legislation, I feel that it is imperative for the Congress to have an idea of | the thinking of a group as potentially powerful as the Urban Coalition, but can understand the problem of the business representatives, who really cannot speak for any business except their own. The Committee adopted a budget of $100,000 for the period August 1, 1967 - January 31, 1968. (Copy attached. ) It also heard reports from the Task Forces on Local Coalitions, Communication, Reconstruction and Urban Housing, Equal Opportunity in Housing, Educational Disparities, Private Employment, and Legislation. The Private Employment Task Force noted it planned to consider setting up pilot meetings in three cities, including Atlanta to consider methods for establishing private business coalitions, The next meeting of the Coalition is scheduled for December 18, possibly in Detroit, DS:fy

Whitmer Mayor of the City of Des Moines City Hall Desa Moines, Iowa Dear Mayor: Since the Fmergency Convocation of The Urban Coalition in August, an increasing nuuber of communities across the country have asked for the assistance of The Coalition in organizing and programming counterpart local coalitions. With a staff capability now assembled, The Urban Coalition is now beginning to respond to these requests particularly in those communities where it is evident that the business, labor, religious, civil rights, and local elected government leadership is prepared to join in efforts to resolve mtual urban probleus. One step The Urban Coalition is taking to render assistance to these communities is furnishing local leadership with the enclosed Guidelines for Local Coalitions. The Guidelines explain the objectives of The Urban Coalition and sug- gest some of the stepa in flexible terme which wight be taken in your community in concert with the national Caalition, A second form of assistance offered by The Urban Coalition is a scheduled one-day Lecal Coalition Planning Session for representatives from local communities interested in pursuing local organization in support of The Urban Coalition objectives. This session will be held October 17, 1967 in Chicago, Illinois and representative leaders from your city are welcome to attend, Further information about this meeting will be sent to you shortly. Please let us hear from you about your local plans and whether we can anticipate representation from your local leadership at the Chicago meeting. We leok forward to your interest and support.

  • Text: MINUTES OF A MEETING OF THE WORKING COMMITTEE Washington, D. C. September 21, 1967 John Feild opened the meeting and defined the working committee as a review- ing and coordinating body with the primary objective of insuring a steady flow of information to the national steering committee so that the steering committee will be able to make appropriate decisions at its meetings. NOTE: Steering committee will meet Monday, October 9 at 7:30 PM in New York at the Time-Life Building, ADMINISTRATION Office space has been secured in the Federal Bar Building West, 1819 H Street NW (telephone 293-1530). John Feild and Ron Linton will continue as coordinators for the Coalition. Full-time staff will consist of Olga Corey, information coordinator and associate coordinators Mel Cotton and Chris Mould, Jim Gibson of the Potomac Institute and Vernon Jordan of the Southern Regional Council will be available on a part-time basis on loan from their respective agencies. NOTE: An administrative report will be sent to you before the October 9 steering committee meeting. You will also receive a roster with names, addresses and phone numbers of all steering committee members and their representatives. A budget for operating the Coalition will be presented to the steering committee on October 9. PUBLICATIONS A roster of all those who attended the Convocation will be sent out before the October 9 meeting: everyone who attended will receive one. Complete proceed- ings are also being prepared and will also be sent to everyone registered at the Convocation. NOTE: Because of printing costs, bulk copies of the proceedings can only be supplied at cost. Please notify Olga Corey in advance of your organ- ization's needs. TASK FORCES Two new task forces are being formed--Local Coalitions and Communications, Co-Chairmen for Local Coalitions are (1) Mayor Joseph Barr of Pittsburgh, (2) a businessman to be selected as soon as possible, and (3) Arnold Aaronson, of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. Co-Chairmen for Communications are (1) Joseph Allen, President of McGraw-Hill Publications, (2) John Johnson, President of Johnson Publications (Ebony, Jet), and (3) Harold Fleming, President of the Potomac Institute. Also, Roy Ash of Litton Industries has agreed to serve as Co-Chairman of the Task Force on Educational Disparities with Dr. Arthur Flemming and Roy Wilkins. PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT Representatives of the Co-Chairmen of the task force met with the coordi- nating staff. They are considering pilot meetings (probably New York, Detroit, Atlanta) at which 10-20 representatives of the local corporate structure will generate ideas and lay the groundwork for local action, The first meeting would be held early in October, Under consideration for follow-up to the local meetings is a national meeting to launch plans for assisting local private employment programs. The task force also plans to prepare a handbook for the initiation and development of local task forces on private employment. LOCAL COALITIONS Cities in which local coalitions are already in the process of formation--or are likely to be--are being identified. These cities will be contacted to send representatives to a national meeting in Chicago on October 18. At this meeting there will be presentations on the techniques of establishing and operating local coalition task forces on private employment, legisla- tion (public service employment) and communications. Meanwhile, staff liaison from the Coalition will be available to any city coalition working in these three areas. Hopefully 50 or more local coalitions will be in operation by early November, NOTE: All members of working committee were asked to immediately contact their principals and urge them to contact key people in local communities who could be helpful in establishing local coalitions as emphasized in the Coalition's Statement of Principles, Goals and Commitments, PUBLIC SERVICE EMPLOYMENT The task force urged members of the working committee to relay to their principals the need for telegrams, calls and letters in support of the Clark-Javits bill, It was explained that the Coalition's endorsement of this legislation was taken as a result of polling members of the steering committee as agreed at the previous meeting. In order to keep procedures clear, the task force will meet before the October 9 steering committee meeting to draw up recommendations to the Committee for Coalition policy on pending legislation. COMMUNICATTONS The three Co-Chairmen of this task force have defined their objectives as three-fold: (1) communicating to the public the meaning, goals and activi- ties of the Urban Coalition, (2) working with other task forces in produc- ing materials which will offer technical assistance and guidance in imple- menting coalition programs and (3) mounting a nationwide educational effort on the urgency of the urban crisis. The national Advertising Council has registered a strong interest in assist- ing the Urban Coalition and has scheduled a special meeting with a coalition representative to discuss how their interests, talents and energies may best be used. RECONSTRUCTION INVESTMENT AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT Task force Co-Chairmen are meeting in New York on October 5, This task force will be working closely with the Insurance Committee on Urban Problems which will also be working closely with local coalitions. EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY Task force co-chairmen have not met yet. A task force operating in Illinois has expressed a desire to work with us, OCTOBER 9 STEERING COMMITTEE MEETING Four items have been proposed for the agenda of the October 9 meeting, which will be attended by principals and their representatives. These are: (1) recommendations on organization, (2) presentation of task force programs, (3) procedures for developing public policy positions and, (4) an admini- strative report. Since there will be discussion of the desirability of enlarging the present 33-member steering committee, especially to provide for some type of participation by local coalitions, a committee was appointed to consider this question and report on October 9, This committee consists of Richard Hirsch, Chairman, Andrew Biemiller, Alfred Eisenpreis, Harold Fleming, Bayard Rustin, Wayne Smithy and Peter Tufo. It was also decided that the proposal for an Urban Economic Council would be presented to the steering committee at the October 9 meeting,

  • Text: DRAFT 10/4/67 REPORT OF SPECIAL WORKING SUB-COMMITTEE ON ORGANIZATION In recognition of the importance of agreement and clarity as to procedure for an ad hoc group such as The Urban Coalition, on September 21st the National Coordinators proposed the establishment of a representative committee drawn from the Working Committee to consider two questions: 1. What procedures should be adopted to enable the Steering Committee to develop and implement public policy positions? 2. What organizational structure should the Coalition develop? . The Committee consists of the following members: Rabbi Richard Hirsch, Chairman (Synogogue Council of America) Wayne Smithy (Ford Motor Company) Alfred Eisenpreis (Allied Stores) Andrew Biemiller (AFL-CIO) Peter Tufo (New York City) Bayard Rustin (A. Philip Randolph) Harold Fleming (Potomac Institute) PUBLIC POLICY POSITIONS Generally speaking, the public policy positions of The Urban Coalition should be achieved by consensus. Occasionally, however, it is likely that individual members of the Steering Committee may, for good and sufficient reason, wish to dissent or express reservations. This is to be expected and should be provided for with a procedural agreement that will enable the Coalition to act, at the same time protecting the interests of those in disagreement. Such procedures should be simple and clear. They should be limited to public policy positions. (The normal administrative affairs of The Urban Coalition should be governed by regular parliamentary procedure with simple majority approval serving as the basis for action). In so far as possible, advance notice shall be given of public policy questions to be on the agenda of any meeting. Issues of public policy not on the advance agenda may be added to the agenda for dis- cussion at the meeting with the approval of a majority of those present. The following procedures are proposed with respect to public policy positions of The Urban Coalition: 1. A quorum shall be a majority of the Steering Committee. 2. Any Steering Committee member may be represented by an alternate. 3. Public policy decisions will be made only by the Steering Committee. 4. Only those approving (voting YES) will be listed in public statements. 5. It is understood that each Steering Committee member is free to determine the form and extent of his participation in any activities to implement | any public policy position taken by The Urban Coalition. 6. Members of the Steering Committee, or their alternates, may vote ES, , ' Fi ‘ NO, or may ABSTAIN. pablce potian portal CxtcopT wWlie a 2hftele oe if ptsoaed 7. The Coalition shall take Ae ects ot aty-oiitaesiodie aickesan ae Ente ? a) five members of the Steering Committee (or their alternates) vote b) Any one of the fabor, ‘caved ts of the Steering Committee (business, al government ) vote NO, pro- vided that-dt least a majority of the members ofthat element are esent (or represented). 8. Polling the Steering Committee will ordinarily not be necessary. Should the need occur, it should be limited as far as possible to implementation of those issues upon which the Steering Committee has already acted. Such special polls should be communicated in writing or by telegram with a spe- cified response date indicated. Such emergency polls shall be governed by the procedures outlined above for determing all public policy positions. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE In order to be effective, the Steering Committee of the Urban Coalition should not be substantially enlarged beyond its present number. For the present, the task force concept can provide ample opportunity for enlarged participation in the program interests of the Coalition. The leadership and members of the task forces can report to and meet with the Steering Committee as needed. Persons can be enlisted to work on projects as they arise. As counterpart local coalitions are formed, however, or as existing coalition groups express their desire to support and work for the goals of the Urban Coalition, provision will have to be made to channel and coordinate these groups. It is recommended, therefore, that the Steering Committee authorize the establishment of a Council on Local Coalitions. Local groups affirming their support of the Statement of Principles, Goals and Commitments and having memberships that reflect the elements’ of the National Steering Committee shall be invited to designate two representatives to serve on the Council. At an early date, a meeting of the Council will be convened for the purpose of exchanging views, making recommendations to the national Steering Committee, and electing two representatives to serve on the national Steering Committee. Staff services for the Council will be provided by the national coordinating staff.

  • Text: ADMINISTRATIVE REPORT By the National Coordinators: October 9, 1967 FACILITIES A short-term (6 month) lease was executed in late September for 1900 square feet of space in the Federal Bar Building West (1819 H Street, N.W.); and the coordinating office was completely moved in and function- ing by September 26. The decision to move from 1717 Massachusetts Avenue, where Urban America is located, was made after it was determined that the 1300 square feet of space at the 1717 Building would have cost $7,000 to remodel and the remodeling, taken a month to complete. No remodeling costs were incurred in the Bar Building lease. Furniture and equipment has been obtained on short-term rental contracts. PUBLICATIONS Weekly reports on coordinating staff activities to be sent to Steer- ing Committee and Working Committee members have been initiated. A monthly action report will be sent the last of each month to the entire mailing list. The roster of those who registered for the Convocation was mailed the week of October 2, and the full proceedings of the Convocation will be mailed in late October. Agenda papers will be mailed at least a week prior to all Steering Committee meetings and minutes of Steering Committee and working committee meetings, mailed immediately after meet- ings. PERSONNEL Budget limitations have held the the national coordinators' full-time paid staff to four professional and five clerical. However, arrangements have been made with the Potomac Institute and the Southern Regional Council to provide extensive part-time assistance from Mr. James Gibson and Mr. Vernon Jordon. The full-time professionals are Mr. Christopher Mould, Mr. Mel Cotton, Miss Olga Corey for press relations, and Mrs. Mary Terpak as administrative coordinator. Several component or- ganizations of the Coalition have indicated that additional personnel will be available on a loaned basis as needed. FINANCES AND BUDGET At the August 23 Steering Committee meeting, a tentative generalized budget was approved. Attached is an adjusted budget, based upon exper- ience and more accurate projections. The August Convocation occurred Administrative Report October 9, 1967 Page 2 prior to the institution of financial arrangements, and the cost has been listed as a lump-sum item rather than distributed under individual catagories. The Convocation costs totaled $21,735, more than twice the anticipated costs and substantially more than can be budgeted and still maintain realism in the balance of budget needs. Through September 15, expenses and obligations totaled $30,214.41. Projected expenses based on the attached budget, September 15 to January 31, are $83,000. Thus current the budget has been exceeded by $13,214, as a result of the Convocation. PROPOSED FINANCIAL AND BUDGET CONTROL Problems of financing the Coalition can be expected to continue to arise. While the national coordinators have accepted responsibility for managing the finances of the Coalition and the Conference of Mayors has agreed to serve as fiscal agent, it is believed that the Steering Committee should be more directly involved. Therefore, it is recommended that a three-member Budget and Finance Committee be appointed from the Steer- ing Committee. Attachment

  • Text: October 9, 1967 MEMORANDUM FROM: Legislative Task Force TO: Steering Committee, Urban Coalition SUBJECT: Report of Legislative Task Force Job Program: The Legislative Task Force has for the last few weeks concentrated on developing support for the Clark-Javits Emergency Employment Act. As originally drafted, the bill did not secure the support of several key Senators. We worked with Senator Prouty of Vermont and Senators Clark, Javits, and Scott, arriving at a compromise version which provided for increased private participation. The compromise was defeated 47 to 42, in spite of substantial Republican support. This was accomplished with limited Steering Committee support. The Task Force is nevertheless encouraged. Because of the narrow margin and the generally good support, an emergency work program will be reintroduced soon. We are cooperating with Senators Clark and Javits in drafting the measure. Senator Clark's Poverty Subcommittee will hold hearings soon after the bill is introduced. Steering Committee members will be asked to testify. A similar emergency employment bill is being considered in the House and if hearings are held Steering Committee members can expect to be asked to testify. Job Related Congressional Legislation Two other measures now pending should receive the full attention of the Urban Coalition as integral components of the job problem. First, the welfare amendments which include a provision requiring all "employable" welfare recipients to enter training programs or the job market, or lose their welfare payments. The negative impact in the ghetto will be great if this provision stands. The Urban Coalition should take a strong stand against this proposal. Second, in the House the Administration's poverty amendments are in dire trouble and in all likelihood will be changed substantially. Recommendations The Task Force recommends that the Steering Committee become actively involved in behalf of these measures. It recommends that the Legislative Task Force be authorized to arrange for testimony by Steering Committee members and take such other action to support the policy approved on these three measures.

  • Text: DRAFT 10/4/67 REPORT OF SPECIAL WORKING SUB-COMMITTEE ON ORGANIZATION In recognition of the importance of agreement and clarity as to procedure for an ad hoc group such as The Urban Coalition, on September 21st the National Coordinators proposed the establishment of a representative committee drawn from the Working Committee to consider two questions: 1. What procedures should be adopted to enable the Steering Committee to develop and implement public policy positions? 2. What organizational structure should the Coalition develop? The Committee consists of the following members: Rabbi Richard Hirsch, Chairman (Synogogue Council of America) Wayne Smithy (Ford Motor Company) Alfred Eisenpreis (Allied Stores) Andrew Biemiller (AFL-CIO) Peter Tufo (New York City) Bayard Rustin (A. Philip Randolph) Harold Fleming (Potomac Institute) PUBLIC POLICY POSITIONS Generally speaking, the public policy positions of The Urban Coalition should be achieved by consensus. Occasionally, however, it is likely that individual members of the Steering Committee may, for good and sufficient reason, wish to dissent or express reservations. This is to be expected and should be provided for with a procedural agreement that will enable the Coalition to act, at the same time protecting the interests of those in disagreement. Such procedures should be simple and clear. They should be limited to public policy positions. (The normal administrative affairs of The Urban Coalition should be governed by regular parliamentary procedure with simple majority approval serving as the basis for action). In so far as possible, advance notice shall be given of public policy questions to be on the agenda of any meeting. Issues of public policy not on the advance agenda may be added to the agenda for dis- cussion at the meeting with the approval of a majority of those present, The following procedures are proposed with respect to public policy positions of The Urban Coalition: A quorum shall be a majority of the Steering Committee. Any Steering Committee member may be represented by an alternate. Public policy decisions will be made only by the Steering Committee. Only those approving (voting YES) will be listed in public statements. It is understood that each Steering Committee member is free to determine the form and extent of his participation in any activities to implement any public policy position taken by The Urban Coalition. Members of the Steering Committee, or their alternates, may vote YES, NO, or may ABSTAIN. The Coalition shall take no action on any public policy matter where: a) Any five members of the Steering Committee (or their alternates) vote NO. b) Any one of the five elements of the Steering Committee (business, labor, civil rights, religion, local government) vote NO, pro- vided that at least a majority of the members of that element are present (or represented). Polling the Steering Committee will ordinarily not be necessary. Should the need occur, it should be limited as far as possible to implementation of those issues upon which the Steering Committee has already acted. Such special polls should be communicated in writing or by telegram with a spe- cified response date indicated. Such emergency polls shall be governed by the procedures outlined above for determing all public policy positions. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE In order to be effective, the Steering Committee of the Urban Coalition should not be substantially enlarged beyond its present number. For the present, the task force concept can provide ample opportunity for enlarged participation in the program interests of the Coalition. The leadership and members of the task forces can report to and meet with the Steering Committee as needed. Persons can be enlisted to work on projects as they arise. As counterpart local coalitions are formed, however, or as existing coalition groups express their desire to support and work for the goals of the Urban Coalition, provision will have to be made to channel and coordinate these groups. It is recommended, therefore, that the Steering Committee authorize the establishment of a Council on Local Coalitions. Local groups affirming their support of the Statement of Principles, Goals and Commitments and having memberships that reflect the elements of the National Steering Committee shall be invited to designate two representatives to serve on the Council. At an early date, a meeting of the Council will be convened for the purpose of exchanging views, making recommendations to the national Steering Committee, and electing two representatives to serve on the national Steering Committee. Staff services for the Council will be provided by the national coordinating staff.

  • Text: MINUTES OF A MEETING OF THE WORKING COMMITTEE September 5th, 1967 Washington, D. C. LEGISLATION The public service employment group submitted a series of four recommen- dations attached. There were no reservations raised in connection with items A, B, or C. Item D raised considerable discussion. It was deter- mined to submit item D to a poll of the Steering Committee members in the following formulation: "That the Coalition seeks a one million emergency job program. The Clark-Javits Emergency Work Title is a step in the right direction and has the support of The Urban Coalition." The working committee representatives agreed to notify the national coordinators of the approval or disapproval of this position by their principals. TASK FORCES Representatives of the private employment task force have met and are now developing a plan of action. A planning session of the educational disparities task force is being arranged. The reconstruction investment and housing task force is still being formed. The equal housing opportunities task force has begun some preliminary planning and will be meeting in the very near future. Two additional task forces were proposed: a task force on local coalitions and a task force on communications. Mr. Heiskell and Mr. Randolph will appoint appropriate co-chairmen. LOGISTICS AND FINANCE The Coalition will establish offices in the very near future at a centrally located building, since Urban America is unable to provide adequate space. Arrangements are continuing to provide the approved budget of $100,000 through January 31st. REPORTS ON MATERIALS The first of two reports on the Convocation have already been distributed to those who attended the August 24th Convocation. The proceedings will be completed in the very near future for distribution. NEXT MEETINGS The agenda for the next Steering Committee meeting will be discussed at the .ext meeting of the working commmittee which will be held on September 2lst. The date for the next meeting of the steering committee was tenta- tively set for October 9th at 7:30 p.m. in New York.
