Fellows, Senior Fellows, Board members, supporters and friends of the organization came together in New York City to explore various issues of social justice in the US and the looming 2016 US Presidential Election.
This conference explored the intersections of social justice and the US election, focusing specifically on issues of race, immigration, inequality and political extremism in the United States. The event featured keynotes, breakouts, site visits and tours, as well as a Senior Fellow reunion dinner.
The conference was generously hosted by The New School for the fourth year.
