92Y American Conversation's mission is to serve as a hub for the most real, substantive and engaging conversations happening in America. Launched during the 2012 campaign, we bring you the most outstanding conversations from our stage and studio from top politicians, journalists, economists, activists-and we'll share great conversations from other sources too, wherever we find them.
The conversation only flourishes if you're part of it! Tweet comments and ideas, using #92YAC, like us on Facebook and give us questions to ask our upcoming speakers.
