Cooper Square Committee is a neighborhood preservation organization that counsels and organizers over 2,000 residents per year in scores of buildings in the East Village/Lower East Side to prevent evictions and displacement, and to improve housing conditions in the community. CSC works with multiple tenant coalitions and engages in issues based campaigns to address illegal hotels, warehousing/frankensteining, and increase tenant safety and prevent lead dust exposure during the renovation of occupied buildings. CSC also sponsors affordable housing development, enrolls low income buildings in energy efficiency programs, provides organizing assistance to the East Vilage Independent Merchants Association (EVIMA), operates and N-NORC for seniors, and runs an Arts Program that trains young people in theater arts through free classes.
