Description

Cooper Square Committee celebrates our 60th Anniversary on Wednesday, Sept. 18th, at 6 pm, in the Frances Goldin Senior Apartments, one of the new buildings at Essex Crossing, named after our co-founder, who advocated for redevelopment of the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area for years. Cooper Square Committee is the oldest anti-displacement organization in NYC, and has sponsored development and renovation of over 600 low income apartments since the early 1980s. Today we are one of the leading community based tenant rights and affordable housing organizations in NYC.

Our Gala will feature a 3 course meal, with several dinner entree options, and drinks served on the large outdoor terrace that holds 200 people. There will be also be live music and a DJ, and a Silent Auction. We will be honoring several people and organizations including the following:

Actress and Activist, Cynthia Nixon for her campaign for Governor in 2018, in which she put forward a progressive agenda including universal rent control

Former Council member Rosie Mendez for her 12 years of service to her district, in particular the Lower East Side/East Village community.

Nelson Denis, author, film director, attorney and former East Harlem Assemblyperson, whose recent work has focused on the socioeconomic crisis in Puerto Rico.

The Upstate/Downstate Housing Alliance which is a coalition of tenant rights groups across NY State, which worked to win sweeping rent law reforms in June. A member will accept on behalf of the coalition.

Join us for cocktails, a 3 course meal, live music, a DJ, and a celebration of organizing victories.
