This Moment and Beyond

During the summer of 2020, we have witnessed a great coming together of people around the world protesting against white supremacy, racism, and police brutality, while calling out the inequalities that exist in our systems of healthcare, economic opportunities, education, housing, and more. At Gallatin and our Urban Democracy Lab, we have had the amazing opportunity to hear from great scholars, legendary figures, writers, activists, elected officials, and more over the years about these issues, as well as issues and systems deeply embedded within them.

We wanted to highlight and share a few of these talks and panels in the hopes that these discussions would be helpful to the Gallatin community in thinking about this pivotal moment and beyond. In addition to the videos below, we invite you to visit the NYU Gallatin YouTube channel to see other lectures and student presentations, as well as videos from the Urban Democracy Lab
