Conversations

Welcome to Conversations, where we discuss issues important to New Yorkers. Each conversation consists of a series of statements. You can interact with them by agreeing, disagreeing and writing your own statements.

Depending on how you interact, you'll be automatically placed in an "opinion group" of people who think similarly to you. Once there are three opinion groups with over 50 people in each, NYSpeaks will work with each group to come up with actionable proposals for what should be done about the issue.
