Introducing The Ineqwiki

The Ineqwiki provides a clearinghouse for the island's community groups and other non-profits, as well as academics, students, and others in colleges and universities, to find one another and collaborate. It seeks to become a springboard for joint work, whether through internships, class or service projects or research, that helps illuminate, address and remedy the many faces of inequality and injustice on Long Island.
