Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: IntegrateNYC4Me: Pushing back against segregated public schools in NYC and beyond. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the event.
Six decades after Brown v. Board of Education, in which the Supreme Court unanimously declared state laws establishing separate schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional, US public schools are increasingly segregated by race and class. Black and Latinx students bear the brunt of that separation, with large shares of both groups trying to learn in schools that offer fewer math, science, and college-prep courses, fewer sports teams, and suffer much higher rates of suspensions and expulsions than the schools their White and more affluent peers attend. In New York City, home to among the most segregated schools in the country, IntegrateNYC4Me, a student-led effort, is pushing back hard against educational segregation and the inequities it represents in their city and across the country. Find out how, why, and what difference its made so far – both to the cause and to the student leaders themselves.
