TueNight Live: Photos From Our #DayofAction

All photos by Neil Kramer

On September 17, National Constitution and Citizenship Day, we gathered in Brooklyn for a truly impactful #DayofAction. With our friends from Feed Our Democracy, and essays curated by Sloane Davidson of Hello Neighbor, we listened to TueNighters share their stories while raising thousands of dollars for Hello Neighbor, an organization that helps new refugees settle in the U.S. via mentorship programs.

Here are some photos from a fantastic evening of doing good.
