ABOUT SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS
Originally founded in 2007 by Ben Goldman and Chaim Lazaros as an annual conference for superheroes, Superheroes Anonymous has since become the legitimate face of the real-life superhero movement – bringing superheroes together in the real world to affect positive change.
Superheroes Anonymous hosts bi-monthly meetings of Superheroes Anonymous that are open to the public. These meetings are intended to inspire the inner superhero by bringing established real life superheroes together with aspiring superheroes. We will help individuals develop their superhero persona, educate them about the work of superheroes and organize large-scale patrols and missions.
THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF SUPERHEROES ANONYMOUS
The first meeting of Superheroes Anonymous was held in October 2007 in Times Square, New York where superheroes met for the first time and helped the homeless, cleaned up the streets and patrolled the area doing random acts of kindness. It was the first such meeting of its kind and attracted widespread media attention, most notably from The New York Times.
The second annual conference took place in New Orleans, LA in collaboration with The Black Ghost. For this event, the Superheroes Anonymous team drove 10 superheroes cross country in an RV, stopping in various destinations along the way to do good. Upon arriving in New Orleans, we rebuilt homes with Habitat for Humanity, cleaned up a school with All Congregations Together, helped the local homeless and marched against youth violence with Silence is Violence. We then gathered on the steps of City Hall as city officials declared it The Day of the Superheroes. The third annual conference was held in New Bedford, MA aka “The Secret City,” on Labor Day weekend 2009. The conference was spearheaded by New Bedford-based superhero Civitron.
Today, Superheroes Anonymous continues to host our annual conference, as well as bi-monthly street outreach events, focused on providing aid to the homeless and other people in need. Our chapters are located in New York City, NY and New Bedford, MA.
