Cooper Square Committee


Founded in 1959, the organization has waged a struggle for affordable housing and inclusive community based planning during more than four decades, through changing political and economic conditions, and under different administrations. While much has changed during 47 years, with many victories as well as some losses, one thing has remained constant in Cooper Square’s history. It’s core values. Cooper Square has always put the needs of poor and working class residents in the forefront of its mission and its agenda. Cooper Square has worked to empower and expand opportunities for people who are often excluded by policy makers and by the private market. Cooper Square’s members created their own vision for this community, and made this one of the few communities that not only survived the urban renewal process but thrived.
