"Energy In Motion: Filmmaker Crystal R. Emery is a Force for Change in STEM."

"The overarching goal of URU’s Changing the Face of STEM (CFS) initiative is to strengthen STEM identification among youth who have been historically underrepresented in STEM and excluded from fully participating in the STEM world. As part of this initiative, URU The Right to Be, Inc. has piloted the use of virtual reality (VR) as a tool to target the STEM identification gap experienced by many young people who rarely or never see STEM role models that look like them. URU created the Virtual Reality Learning Experience (VRLE) “You Can’t Be What You Can’t See” using the Oculus Go platform. In this VRLE, young people enter an immersive, interactive simulated environment in which they are able play the role of doctor or IV technician."

"I Can't Doesn't Live Here."

“Director 2 Director,” a live-virtual discussion, will showcase Emery, Richardson-Whitfield and Cortés — three of the most successful Black female directors in the industry, where they will speak candidly about their careers and obstacles they’ve triumphed over. “Courageous Conversations” will be presented by URU, The Right To Be, the multimedia production nonprofit with the focus of cultivating greater communication."

"Wednesday, URU The Right to Be Inc. announced that it will partner with the City of New Haven and 10 firehouses across the city as part of Our Humanity, a nationwide campaign to prevent and reduce Covid-19. URU Founder and Executive Director Crystal Emery delivered that news with members of the New Haven Fire Department (NHFD), city officials, and religious leaders outside of NHFD headquarters at 952 Grand Ave."
