Join us on the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy and Occupy Sandy too, to hear from those whose daily lives continue to be impacted, including a homeowner from Canarsie, a NYCHA resident from Red Hook, a business owner (Buzzy O'Keeffe, The River Cafe), and a Coney Island first responder.

Amy Starecheski, Associate Director of the Columbia Oral History MA Program, will moderate. Featuring Rachel Falcone from Sandy Storyline. Co-presented with the Brooklyn Community Foundation. Followed by a reception for BHS's new exhibition 'Documenting Sandy.'

RSVP here.

And....An Invitation to Share Stories

It’s been nearly a year since the storm and it’s important that the millions of people who have been impacted by the storm and the recovery process get to voice what they have been through and what they want to see in the future. We know that the media frenzy around the anniversary of the storm is going to disappear as quickly as it came. It is critical that we grow platforms to tell our stories ourselves. Know of any Sandy Stories? Invite the people you know to share their stories at this critical moment!
