About this event

Join us in conversation with Louis Bailey, Assembly Member Marcela Mitaynes, Fernando Ortiz Baez, and Hatuey Ramos-Fermin as they discuss the future of community organizing.

Grassroots leaders and community groups have long been essential forces in advocating for and creating more equitable and sustainable neighborhoods. However, until last year their work has been largely undervalued and overlooked for its power to strengthen our cities.

This past year highlighted the value of on-the-ground community organizing work, and generated a myriad of new possibilities for it. We have seen the rise of mutual aid networks, online organizing tactics that supported budget equity, designers fighting for a more community- and justice-centered profession, and more.

For the seventh and final Power After the Pandemic dialogue, we welcome three alumni from ANHD’s Center for Community Leadership to envision a more people-powered city after the pandemic. 

Join us to discuss: how can cross-sector coalitions build solidarity and power in service of more equitable cities?

If you are not a member of ANHD or UDF, we encourage you to contribute $5 or more to support this program.

About Power After the Pandemic

Power After the Pandemic is jointly led by the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development and Urban Design Forum. Our program will build on the foundations of the ANHD’s 10th Annual Community Development Conference and UDF’s City Life After Coronavirus series.

Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build community power to win affordable housing and thriving, equitable neighborhoods for all New Yorkers. Our members include more than 80 neighborhood-based affordable housing and equitable economic development organizations across New York City, and we use capacity-building, organizing, and policy advocacy to advance our mission.

Urban Design Forum mobilizes civic leaders to confront the defining issues facing New York City’s built environment. We are an independent membership organization that empowers professionals of diverse backgrounds, industries and perspectives to shape a better future for all New Yorkers. We investigate complex challenges in the built environment, study alternative approaches from cities around the world, and advance progressive strategies to build a more dynamic and democratic city.
