Lonnie Ali to be Key Note Speaker with Mayor Greg Fischer at the 27th Annual Congress for the New Urbanism Opening Plenary Session

Louisville Palace Theatre
Wednesday, June 12th, 5:30-7:00pm

Since taking office in 2010, Mayor Greg Fischer has made compassion one of the pillars of his administration, and Louisville has become a leader in the Compassionate City Movement. Much of the inspiration for this work has derived from the spirit, principles, and humanity of Muhammad Ali, Louisville’s most renowned native son.  His torch continues to burn even after his death through the efforts of his wife Lonnie, the Muhammad Ali Center, and the millions of people across the globe who continue to see him as a beacon of light and compassion.
The general public is welcome to attend the kick-off of the 27th annual Congress for the New Urbanism at the historic Louisville Palace Theatre and hear from both Mayor Fischer and Lonnie Ali as they discuss the evolution of Louisville as a City of Compassion, Muhammad Ali’s connection to his community, and how his principles inspired the development of the Ali Center. 
Free and Open to the Public.
