We are thrilled to be presenting Community Service Awards to the founders of the Brooklyn Heights Community Fridge, and to Amerika Williamson, for spearheading the annual tree lighting ceremony on the Promenade.
In addition, the meeting will feature two fantastic authors and journalists in a conversation about Climate Change and what must be done now to address it.
