This year residents across the city of New York have been forced to contend with long-running racial and economic disparities in public health, housing security, policing, and education. These political and social dimensions of structural inequality have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic. This town hall will feature student, academic, and policy voices in a roundtable conversation about the work that has been done and that remains to be done in our city to contend with persistent structures of systemic racism and discrimination. We invite you to join us in this vital discussion with your questions, concerns, and an open mind.


City Council Member Inez Barron (District 42)

City Council Majority Leader Laurie Cumbi (District 35)

Professor Regina Bernard (Black and Latino Studies, Baruch College)

Andrea Gonzáles (Macaulay Honors College at CUNY)



Professor Marcus Johnson (Political Science)

Teona Pagan (President of Black Student Union)
