You Love NYC?
Then Do Something
New York is a city of CONTRIBUTORS – volunteers who devote some of their time and treasure to making the city a better place. The pandemic brought out the courage and tenacity of New Yorkers, but it also resulted in problems that seem bigger than individual efforts can possibly solve. Collective action is needed, and that is what WE ❤️NYC is all about. Get involved and do your part to keep New York City the greatest city in the world. Find a way to get involved below.

New York is a city of DO-ERs – individuals and groups that take action to help their neighbors and their city. As we emerge from the global pandemic into a new, digital world, our future will be determined by the actions of “Do-ers” who step up to solve problems, to start new businesses, to help those in need. Government cannot do the job alone. Join us in celebrating the Do-ers and tell us about a Do-er you know with the link below.
Determined to use her voice, Sasha collaborated with her family, friends, and neighbors to bring opera to her stoop. As a student of opera at the Manhattan School of Music, Sasha arranged a stoop opera performance with other artists for her neighbors during the pandemic when everyone was required to stay indoors. She subsequently founded Opera Next Door, now featured on stoops citywide.

That's how EatOkra was born. Today, it's a trusted resource for foodies everywhere, connecting people with excellent Black-owned restaurants and creating a win-win situation for everyone.
