Each year, tens of thousands of elementary school children visit the Museum to visit Activist New York. From fieldtrips for school groups to afterschool elective classes for middle and high school students, the Activist New York exhibition engages students of all ages about social justice issues they care about, and introduces them to the many tactics activists have used to advocate for change.
