Grassroots Activism Lecture - An example of how it can WORK!

Saturday, April 20, 2019

1:00 pm


Fire Island has been an oasis for vacationers for more than 150 years. To the polarizing "master builder" Robert Moses, its coastline was ripe for the construction of an Ocean Parkway. Standing up to those ambitions were the seventeen individualistic communities of Fire Island, unified in their love for their sun-washed sandy beaches. Learn how a community saved their coastline with a grassroots movement. Author and professor Christopher Verga presents this triumphant struggle against the Goliath of twentieth-century New York development.
