The Laundromat Project is an arts and social justice organization that advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities throughout New York City. It envisions a world in which people of color work together to unleash the power of creativity to transform lives.

In 2020, The Laundromat Project built on its 2019 fundraising success with a People-Powered Challenge, an annual, 10-day, peer-to-peer campaign mobilizing people committed to societal change.

The Laundromat Project’s People Powered Challenge 2020 raised $65,000+ from almost 800 donations, a powerful 65% more than the $40,000 goal, to support its first long-term home and creative community hub in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
