The New York 2 X Coalition, also known as NY2X, is a youth-led peer education program and a network of New York-based young people who organize and mobilize across the city and country. NY2X works in solidarity with those most affected by the social, racial, and economic inequalities in New York, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Albuquerque, and beyond. Through service-based learning and relationship-building on urban farms and with activist groups in these diverse locales, youth break down societally-imposed barriers and work together to combat racism, classism, and hierarchy in all its institutional and intrapersonal forms.
A Brief History of Us... Following Hurricane Katrina, students, parents, and teachers from Beacon High School in NYC organized trips to New Orleans to aid in the reconstruction of the Lower Ninth Ward. There, they learned of the dramatic ways in which race, class, and the environment intersect and disproportionately harm certain groups in Louisiana and beyond. When Beacon's administration chose to end their support for these trips, students felt it was their duty to continue the work they had only just begun. They formed a student group that could work outside the confines of one school or one institution. Thus in 2007, NY2NO, or "New York 2 New Orleans", was formed. As the network of farms and activist spaces that NY2NO visited and worked with grew, a name change was in order. NY2X, or "New York 2 X", encompasses all the groups that we work with today. Get involved now to witness we will go next!
