SPEECH: Sustaining the Future

Remarks by Stephanie K. Meeks President at California Preservation Foundation Conference

In May, Stephanie Meeks gave a provocative speech at the California Preservation Conference about the connection between the 2010 Census and the future of the preservation movement. In it, she argued that our ability to remain relevant in the next 25 to 50 years may depend on reflecting changing racial and ethnic demographics in our organizations as well as in the sites we protect.
