Thank you to those who joined DRA's virtual State of Downtown Raleigh presented by PNC on Thursday, September 17 from 2-3 pm. This year, through data and stories, we highlighted what makes our community resilient: our ability to reimagine and reinvent, our diversity and community pride, and our coming together in difficult times to support one another.
