About Forward Union

Forward Union Fair is a political and community action info fair.

In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, many Americans have been asking, “What can I do now?” The goal of Forward Union is to provide practical, action-based resources to help concerned citizens begin to answer this question in meaningful ways. To do so, Forward Union Fair will gather under one roof a coalition of causes: representatives from NGOs, nonprofits, political, and community organizations that are working to lift up and to protect the people, places, and values under threat. This free, public event will connect motivated individuals seeking an outlet with the hard-working groups that need their participation and support. Forward Union believes we can amplify our power by showing up for each other.

Forward Union Fair will take place in an empty, ground floor retail space on Broadway, just south of Astor Place. Fair organizers will provide space and administrative support so that participating groups can share their values and spread their calls to action. Artists and curatorial collectives will also have the opportunity to present new concepts or performances inspired by the current political climate.

Forward Union Fair will culminate with a transition into FU After Dark, continuing the good vibes with an electrifying evening of music and dance. Musicians and social activist artists will amplify our power through performance and music. It will be an evening of inclusion, inspiration, and entertainment, with surprise DJs and musicians to be announced. Tickets are by donation and all proceeds will go towards worthy causes.
