The Conference will also include youth-led programming, nonviolence trainings, a theater program in collaboration with The New School for Drama and Naked Angels theater company, and a live art event with noted conscious muralists Beats, Rhymes and Relief.

The goal of GULD will be to end the Conference with the establishment of 2 ‘solutions reports’ – one prepared based on community discussions, the other developed based on GULD’s content – which will be delivered to the de Blasio and Cuomo administrations soon after GULD ends. Justice League will then take the Conference and those solutions to a new city each year.
