Honoring Keith Mestrich & Amalgamated Bank

24It was our pleasure to honor one of our oldest and greatest partners for our 2015 Winter Reception: Amalgamated Bank and CEO Keith Mestrich.

The Workmen’s Circle and Amalgamated’s predecessor, the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, first joined forces in the 1920s and 30s around the Amalgamated Housing Cooperative in the Bronx, a vibrant immigrant community founded by the union, which included many of our members.

Ever since, we’ve been on the same side of so many issues, and shoulder to shoulder in so many movements including, most recently, in the Fight for $15.

We couldn’t have asked for a more deserving honoree – or a more fun evening! Take a look at all of our Winter Reception photos.

We are so grateful to the supporters that appear in the below virtual journal, as well as Avia Moore, Elizabeth Hovav, the Helen Mills Event Space and Theater, N.G. Slater Corporation, and Universal Printing and Mailing House.
