2021 We the People Ball

We Hope You Enjoyed the Program!

Thank you to all those who supported this year's virtual We the People Ball and helped us raise over $1.2 million in support of Educational Alliance! With your help, we will continue providing the people of Lower Manhattan critical social services, dynamic community programs, and a sense of belonging.

We look forward to celebrating with you next year—in person!

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS AND SUPPORTERS!
