ROAR (Restaurants Organizing Advocating & Rebuilding) was founded in March 2020 by a group of hospitality industry professionals driven to step up and fight for the survival of our industry and the people that make it so special. Today, we are led by a dynamic 12 member Steering Committee who are leading the charge to advocate for restaurant workers and the New York City independent restaurant industry with the goal of creating a path to a sustainable future.
