Integrate NYC is a youth-led organization that stands for integration and equity in New York City schools.
“We, the students, are the best experts on the impacts of this segregation and inequality. At IntegrateNYC, we are also designers of solutions, advocates for transformative policy, and visionaries for a more just future.
We have learned from the past, and we do not want to stop at desegregation. True, meaningful integration requires a transformation in our school system that centers students and communities of color. We have developed and are advocating for 5Rs of Real Integration to create lasting, revolutionary change in our school system.
We also stand for Real Representation of young people in decision making at local, city, state, and federal levels.”
