We host hundreds of community programs a year with advocacy, social justice and education at the forefront of our work. We hold forums on key social issues, and discussions on ethics and philosophy. We partner with other organizations to co-sponsored programs that serve the public good. Issues of war, social policy, and human rights have been discussed here by Al Gore, Paul Krugman, Cornell West, Naomi Klein, Toni Morrison and others.
Our building is also a thriving home for arts and culture, with films, theatrical events, book discussions and writing, music and art workshops. Our Concert Hall comes alive with a variety of popular, jazz, and classical music programs, including the American Classical Orchestra, the JVC Jazz Festival, the Chamber Music Society at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School and WFUV’s concert series.
Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
