The Third Annual Social Justice Expo will gather New York City youth for an exhibition of youth-led action projects on May 2, 2011 from 12 to 2pm at NYU’s Kimmel Center. Sponsored by NYU’s Center for Multicultural Education and Programs, the exhibition provides the opportunity for youth to network with other young organizers, college students, representatives of foundations, and other community members.
The event will showcase the breadth and depth to which New York City youth are organizing around issues such as immigration, teen pregnancy, the environment, gun violence, tolerance, discrimination, poverty, housing, and education.
“One of our highlights of the year… It was obvious the students put a lot into their projects and for some it may have started out more of a ‘school assignment’ but it clearly became an activity of passion and conviction.” – Richard Chavolla, Director of the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs at NYU
“I was impressed with the knowledge and wealth of information these students knew. They were very passionate about their projects and it just goes to shows how our future leaders are doing some great work.” – Michelle R. Van-Ess, Assistant Director, Student Resource Center at NYU
