State of Young Black New York: The Art of Justice

Join the New York Urban League Young Professionals for the 7th annual State of Young Black New York Conference. SOYBNY is a signature event of the NYULYP which brings together hundreds of professionals and leaders across various disciplines to assess the current condition of young Black New York and to develop solutions to the issues affecting our communities. This year's theme is the Art of Justice.

Dynamic panel sessions aim to present unique perspectives on headline issues such as criminal justice reform, cultural organizing, economic empowerment and more. In addition we will pay homage to creative arts and its inspiration to social movements. While attendees enjoy the creative space, this symposium will serve as a catalyst for participants to jumpstart their personal actions to activate during this age of a renewed civil rights movement.
