  • GNEP has partnered with ROOTS, a student organization at the New York Institute of Technology to provide monthly conversations on topics that impact people of African, Caribbean and Latino descent. The intention of these conversations is to affirm the richness of our culture and to disrupt conversations that impact our ability to fully realize our potential and purpose on this planet at this time in history. The Conversations are hosted the third Thursday of every month. [button color="#COLOR_CODE" background="#COLOR_CODE" size="medium"
