NYCYF events provide opportunities for Youth Funders to network, share lessons learned, explore new challenges facing New York City youth, and examine the City’s philanthropic and public response to these issues. The network also creates venues in which local funders can learn from youth programming, research, and policy experts, both locally and nationally. In addition to in-person meetings, NYCYF uses diverse vehicles including webinars, conference calls, LIST-SERVS, and policy briefs to communicate with its constituents.

Respected and Reflected: Dismantling Racial Bias in Schools

April 3, 2019

Time:9:45 am - 12:00 pm

Dismantling Racial Bias in Schools through Culturally Responsive Education

In a city where most students are students of color, few reforms have focused on racial bias and discrimination in our schools. To address the root causes of persistent inequalities in the New York City schools, advocates and community leaders are calling for a shift in thinking about school environments, structures, curricula, and relationships called culturally relevant education (CRE). This an important funder briefing brought to you by Philanthropy New York and The Donors’ Education Collaborative.

Join us as we learn about CRE and its potential to center learning around our students and more deeply engage them in our schools, our communities, and our democracy.

Registration is required by April 2nd.


  • What does racial injustice look like in schools, and how does CRE address it?
