State of Young Black New York Conference 2017: The Art of Justice

  • Medgar Evers College 1650 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11225 United States (map)

SOYBNY is a signature event of the NYULYP which brings together hundreds of professionals, leaders, and think-tanks across various disciplines to assess the current condition of young Black New York and to develop solutions to the issues affecting our communities.
Dynamic panel sessions aim to present unique perspectives on headline issues such as criminal justice reform, cultural organizing, economic empowerment and more. Yet participants will be challenged to address less discussed issue areas including the lack of community cohesion and the burdens of trauma and mental health in our communities. 
Through plenaries, a keynote address, panel discussions, and exhibition hall, SOYBNY 2017 intends to contribute to the pressing issues in our community today through the prism of the significant political change which will be taking place in our country in the coming year.
