M2M story is HERE; Sec says this about his goal: make sure that every neighborhood, no matter where it starts, is moving on the path to greater opportunity. That is an important point that is too often lost. While we can have disagreements about means to an end, the end is really to get to integrated, vital neighborhoods of opportunity. It could be a neighborhood today that has opportunity but is closed to low income families and families of color; it is also the reverse, taking neighborhoods that have been cut off from opportunity and that have concentrated poverty that we are moving on the path of becoming a neighborhood of greater opportunity.”
