The Action Item Fair brings New Yorkers together on Saturday, April 8, for a day of learning and action to channel our individual power into systemic change.

Come together to meet experienced organizations and leaders who are propelling social, economic and environmental causes. Be part of a tangible movement of people who want to create a better future together.

TOGETHER WE WILL:

  • Identify immediate steps we can each take to support change in our city and country.
  • Learn from a community of change-makers, activists, advocates and allies.  
  • Meet other passionate individuals to inspire each other and work together.
  • Listen deeply and question our assumptions about why we're here and where to go next.
