AMC Brave Conversations: Black Lives Matter
AMC Brave Conversations is a space where meaningful dialogue around the topic of racial equality and equity takes place. The singular goal of the Brave Conversation is to keep the discussion of justice current. Conversations are fueled by the perspective of all those involved and all members of the NYU community are welcome. We believe that every voice has value and needs a space to be heard.
Brave Ambassadors dive deeper into the content and data gathered during our Brave Conversations in an effort to build methods, structures, and practices to help widen the net of racial justice at NYU.
Brave Conversations are not recorded in an effort to create an environment conducive to honest and open conversations.
