Nominate a LES Community Hero!


The LES Community Hero Awards were created to celebrate and honor the “unsung heroes” of the Lower East Side.

Recently, it’s been difficult to feel connected as a community. Yet it’s clear that so many people — neighbors, friends, family, ‘essential workers’, organizers, small business owners, and many others — have been critically important to our community as we navigate overlapping crises of health, economic survival, and the ongoing battle for racial justice.

Recognizing our own people and the role they’ve played in sustaining our community feels even more meaningful in 2021.

We hope you’ll join us in nominating an “unsung hero” of the Lower East Side!

Deadline: April 2
