Miriam Friedlander was an active and inspired city council member representing the East Village and Lower East Side from 1974 to 1991. She led her district and the NYC public by initiating important conversations and creating and holding space for the underrepresented. Throughout her life Miriam was a strong advocate for women, elders, tenants, the homeless and gay and lesbian communities. Tune in to our livestream of archived episodes of Manhattan at Large and watch as she discusses crucial topics with prominent city activists, organizers and civil servants that still ring true today.
Stay Tuned in March
