2022 People-Powered Challenge

LP community call for participation and celebration! 

Over the past two years we’ve been working to build out our first long-term home in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn—listening to neighbors, developing partnerships, designing a welcoming space, and planning community programs. Next year will be a year of transformation with the elevated leadership of our current deputy and soon-to-be executive director, Ayesha Willams. It will also be our first full year of community programs rooted in Bed-Stuy, which will allow us to better support artists and neighbors working to address critical issues such as racial justice, environmental justice, and LGBTQIA+ safe spaces.

Harnessing this seminal moment, we will host our 2022 People-Powered Challenge—a 10-day (Oct 17-26) peer-to-peer campaign to raise $50k to support our first full year of programming in our new home.

About the campaign:  The People-Powered Challenge is The LP’s annual 10-day peer-to-peer campaign where we fundraise through the collective power of our friends, family, neighbors, and social networks to support artists and neighbors who are committed to societal change. This campaign strengthens our communities by getting supporters, new and old, to invest in our work with us.
