for support of the Equity and Democracy Initiative
The Equity and Democracy Initiative at NYU is an ambitious, multifaceted initiative to catalyze understanding, innovation, high-impact work, and social change. The initiative combines scholarship, field-building, experiential education, academic convenings, internships, and fellowships to examine how inequality functions, is exacerbated, and can most effectively be disrupted — in our economy and in our democracy. The initiative is sponsored by the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU School of Law and NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
