L-Train Shutdown Forum 6:00 pm
L-Train Shutdown Forum
Sep 6 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 6 @ 8:00 pm
New York City’s public transit problems have been at the top of everyone’s mind. Between congestion pricing and the millionaires tax, it’s easy to forget that in 2019, the L-Train will shut down for 15 months … unless, of course, you live near the L-Train. With the election approaching, Transportation Alternatives wants to make sure that L-Train users like you are informed about how your City Council candidates are planning to protect you from L-Train-related gridlock. Of the 50,000 Manhattan residents who use the L-Train every day, the shutdown will particularly affect those who live and work in the Financial District, the Lower East Side, Stuytown, Chelsea, and the West Village. MODERATOR: Christopher Robbins City Editor from Gothamist PANELISTS: Dashia[...]

Race in the United States: The Social Construction of Race and Islamophobia
Sep 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The 2016 U.S. Presidential election revealed the stubborn persistence of bigotry in the United States, and demonstrated that race continues to play a significant, if changing, role in how we define our communities, develop our public policy, and shape our democratic institutions. This course brings together scholars, experts, thought leaders and activists to examine such issues as racial stratification, implicit bias, and the complex, intersectional relationships between race, gender, and class. What is race and how do we understand it today? How are demographic shifts driving wedges between communities and/or fostering pluralism? How democratic is our pluralist society? What is the role of racial divides in fomenting political partisanship? What impact does racialized discourse have on such issues as the[...]

The Pruitt-Igoe Myth – Movie Screening
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm – Sep 22 @ 8:30 pm
The Cities and Social Justice Concentration of The New School’s SGPIA is screening another movie this Friday. The Pruitt-Igoe Myth tells the story of the transformation of the American city in the decades after World War II, through the lens of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe housing development and the St. Louis residents who called it home. At the film’s historical center is an analysis of the massive impact of the national urban renewal program of the 1950s and 1960s, which prompted the process of mass suburbanization and emptied American cities of their residents, businesses, and industries. Those left behind in the city faced a destitute, rapidly de-industrializing St. Louis, parceled out to downtown interests and increasingly segregated by class and race.[...]

After the War on Drugs: European Perspectives on Drug Policy and Public Health
Sep 28 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm
Join Dr. Thomas Kattau and Elena Hedoux, members of the esteemed Council of Europe (the continent’s leading human rights organization), for a timely discussion on drug policy and public health. The ‘war on drugs’ has for decades shaped drug policies around the world. Then in 2011, the Global Commission on Drug Policy declared: “The global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world. Fifty years after the initiation of the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, and years after President Nixon launched the US government’s war on drugs, fundamental reforms in national and global drug control policies are urgently needed.” At the United Nations General Assembly Session on the World Drug Problem in[...]
