Our Heroes! Debra Jeffreys-Glass and Kim Fong
(presenters K Webster and Ryan Gilliam)
Thank you to FABnyc for honoring ALL our neighborhood heroes – and Park heroes Kim Fong and Debra Jeffreys-Glass – during the 2022 LES Community Hero Awards*
*”The LES Community Hero Awards are intended to recognize community members whose contributions have been deeply meaningful and yet are often the ‘unsung’ heroes of the neighborhood. The awards were created in 2014 as part of the first celebration of Lower East Side History Month in May, now an annual event.”
Stop by. Write your own wish for the world, this park, this city.
Here Saturdays 12pm-2pm June through August (weather permitting).
We are a parks and open space coalition of more than 400 advocacy organizations dedicated to building a better-funded, more equitable and resilient parks system in New York City.
Increase parks funding to 1 percent of the city’s budget: Every world-class park system in the US receives at least 1-2 percent of annual city funding. New York has underinvested in parks for over 50 years, allocating only about 0.5 percent for parks, despite parks and natural areas covering 14% of our city and more than 30,000 acres.
Save critical parks maintenance workers: NYC Parks will suffer a net loss of 1800 Cleaning Corps workers, leaving a gap in the workforce which will disproportionately impact communities of color.
