For the last two years the Zip Code Memory Project found ways to memorialize the devastating losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic while also acknowledging its radically differential effects on Upper New York City neighborhoods.

Please join us on April 12th as we wrap up and reflect on our project and meet related New York City Pandemic Initiatives.

4:30 – 5:45

Enter our time capsule and Talk to the Future with Maria José Contreras
