See what the new American Human Development Index reveals about the distribution of opportunity in America, with a special focus on the New York metro area. It’s home to some of the country’s highest—and lowest—levels of human well-being. Hear about the big gaps in and around the Big Apple— the significant disparities in the health, education, and living standards of different groups and different neighborhoods in NYC, southern Connecticut, Westchester, Long Island, and Northern NJ.

Events are open and free to the public.
