The Union Square Awards believes that grassroots activism strengthens local communities. The Awards identify activists, community organizers, advocates and service providers across New York City neighborhoods who were building organizations addressing homelessness and hunger; HIV/AIDS prevention, education and treatment; youth leadership and organizing; familiy and community development; and conflict resolution, among other concerns. Specifically, the Arts Award program recognizes the exceptional and leadership role of arts organizations working with youth and families in low-income communities.
