What's Happening at NYU Metro Center

A Call to Action in Honor of Daunte Wright

At NYU Metro Center, we have long stood and continue to stand with causes such as #PoliceFreeSchools and youth-led organizations such as the Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC) who have championed the removal of police from schools and the prioritization of resources and support to facilitate environments that are safe and supportive for our children. The recent murder of Daunte Wright (his killing has been deemed a homicide) reminds us that we have a long way to go to set all of our children up for success.

Anti-racist Initiative

Our Anti-Racist and Critical Whiteness Initiative builds on our commitment to promote educational equity and confront anti-Black racism and white supremacy. As Black, Indigenous, and people of color work to disrupt systemic racism and challenge white people to act, many white people are seeking opportunities to expose supremacist ideologies and practice anti-racism.
