POC-Centered Principles

Since our beginning, The LP has centered the voices, cultures, imaginations, knowledge, and leadership of people of color (POC).

We do this to push against complex systemic injustices in pursuit of a world in which all people—across race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, disability status, and migration status—are free to be their whole selves.


Bed-Stuy Happenings

Meet Destiny Belgrave, Fulton Street Window Commission Artist

The Fulton Street window commission is a yearly project whereThe Laundromat Project commissions a 2-D image or illustration from a local artist. The vinyl artwork lives on the public-facing window of The LP’s office at 1476 Fulton Street in Brooklyn for one calendar year, creating an outdoor art installation that engages neighbors and passersby. Destiny Belgrave is the inaugural artist to create artwork for this commission.
