LES History Month is funded, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council Members Rosie Mendez and Margaret Chin. LES History Month is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, including Assemblywoman Deborah J. Glick.
Get in touch! LES History Month (LESHM) is an annual celebration of the rich, diverse history of the Lower East Side, and relies largely on donations from you to support these community events. If you are unable to make a monetary donation, please consider donating hospitality or other resources. We can use all of the help and collaboration we can get for this incredible month celebrating our community. Please reach out to NADIA@FABNYC.ORG for gifts and other inquiries.
