New York City residents have been forced to contend with long-running racial and economic disparities in public health, housing security, policing, and education. These political, social, and racial dimensions of structural inequality have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic. This round table discussion will feature student, academic, and policy voices in a conversation about the work the City has done–as well as what remains to be done. We invite you to join us in this vital discussion–please bring your questions, concerns, and an open mind.
Join the conversation, “Speaking Truth to Power: Demanding a Response to Structural Inequality in NYC” as BLS Professor Regina Bernard and Andrea Gonzáles (BC ’22) engage City Council Members Inez Baron (District 42) and Laurie Cumbo (District 35). Professor Marcus Johnson (Political Science) and Teona Pagan (BC ’21) will moderate.
