Thank you for a great 2018 Gala!

Our 2018 gala demonstrated the power of our community to come together to fight for what we believe in, and to celebrate each other and our victories.

We had a great time—close to 600 people were part of an evening of celebration and recognition of the hard work that goes into building our local movements for justice.

By coming together and giving, you contributed over $1 million dollars for grassroots organizing in New York City and the Hudson Valley. See the highlights here:
