LES Is More: Loisaida Activism


LES Is More
Friday, May 8, 2015

Celebrate the Lower East Side’s legacy of activism with true stories from three activists who have fought in the trenches and lived through tremendous transformation in the LES. The second installment of LES Is More spotlights Loisaida activism, in honor of Lower East Side History Month. Now in its 2nd year, LES History Month is a platform for asserting local identity, pushing back at its erosion, and opening new dialogue about the present and the future.

Featuring stories from Fly (LES squatter movement), Frances Goldin (Cooper Square Committee), and Raul Rios (LatinosNYC).

Share your own stories, memories, poetry, music, and more in our Open Forum!
