Pivotal Place: New York City

New York City has the potential to be a model 21st century sustainable urban community that cultivates civic life and the natural environment, encourages immigrant civic and political participation, supports individual achievement and artistic expression, and generates widely shared prosperity. The Fund’s New York City program aims to support the city’s efforts to be a force for positive change both within and beyond its borders.

Since 2000, F.I.E.R.C.E. has empowered New York City's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth of color to effect change in their communities.
En Foco documents work created by artists, particularly those of Latino, African, Asian, and Native American heritage, who are often overlooked by the mainstream art world.
