Student investigators in action!

Our Fall Youth Education projects are in full swing! CUP is collaborating with students across NYC to investigate social justice ranging from who is impacted by fare evasion, to the uses of facial recognition technology. By interviewing key stakeholders, conducting surveys, and visualizing their findings, students are demystifying complex systems and learning how to get involved in civic decision-making. Check out some of the topics they’re investigating!
