#FlatLillian Takes On The World!

By Henry Street Settlement

Everyone is in on Henry Street Settlement’s 125th birthday celebration—including our founder, Lillian Wald! Our doll-sized mascot is showing up in photographs from the Lower East Side to Texas to Belize! Team members and community ambassadors are making the rounds with Flat Lillian to educate the public about our history and inspire interest in the upcoming House on Henry Street exhibit.
