Join Citizens Committee for New York City this Summer for a series of virtual events featuring neighborhood leaders and cultural connoisseurs, as we showcase New York City talent while engaging in discourse around the COVID-19 pandemic. Hear from our grantees on their All In Neighborhood projects and learn new skills during our Class Sessions segment, taught by influencers and celebrity guests.
Now is the time to support Citizens Committee as we empower communities, celebrate culture, engage in conversations, and toast to neighborhood leaders and supporters with a cocktail or two.
Cooking at Home with Zach
Grab your cutting board and ready your spice rack as James Beard Award winning chef, Zach Engel, teaches you one of his favorite recipes. Joining him is longtime friend and NYC food writer, Jake Cohen, as the two discuss their love of food and community.
Sit down with Alexander Smalls, the James Beard Award winning chef, author, singer, and restaurateur, as he discusses his new book, Meals, Music, and Muses, and his beloved community with fellow Harlemite and friend, film producer Lisa Cortés.
Join us as we celebrate the culmination of our Citizens Summer Sessions, featuring a compilation of never before seen performances from our community partners, surprise guest appearances, and special thank yous to our supporters!
