Inspired by the Humanity in Action International Conference, the New York Conference is a regional gathering for Senior Fellows and friends of Humanity in Action.

This year's conference will explore the theme of social justice and the U.S. election, focusing specifically on issues of race, immigration, inequality and political extremism in the United States. The event will feature keynotes, breakouts, site visits and tours, as well as a Senior Fellow reunion dinner.
