The Brookings Institution, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank on public policy, held its 75th anniversary conference on public policy with invited speakers on U.S. domestic and foreign policy. Ms. Rivlin presided over a panel focused on how communities may determine public policy that would foster self reliance among its citizens as well as care for community members that need help.
