You Don't Have to Move, to Live Better

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

9:30am to 10:30am (CST)

Before New Orleans, Detroit, or Bradford PA, the symbol of Urban-American blight was Majora's hometown, the South Bronx in NY City. After spennding her early years trying to get away from the Bronx, she found herself back at her parents' house as a result of financial needs while attending graduate school at NYU. What seemed like a defeat at first, led to her rediscovery & healing of her community and herself. No matter what condition your hometown is in, the possibility for more happiness, equality, efficiency, and prosperity can be realized when "problems" are looked at in the context of Home(town) Security and what that means to communities everywhere.
