It was a busy week as I joined with my colleagues for a conversation to reimagine and reenvision the Kingsbridge Armory, testified before the House Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance to advocate for federal fire safety legislation, gathered with our cure violence organizations to denounce gun violence in our neighborhoods, visited a historic Bronx building that will be transformed into a school for our youth, and so much more on behalf of the residents and families of this great borough.
I also hope you will join us tomorrow at 6:30 pm for our Iftar Celebration at Family House Hall Community Center to recognize the incredible organizations in our borough that are empowering and uplifting our Muslim communities in the Bronx.
In addition, we are excited to announce the relaunch of Bronx Week from May 5th - May 15th! Our office, in partnership with the Bronx Tourism Council, the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation and event sponsors, will host a series of events throughout the borough highlighting our residents, cultural institutions, art, culture, food, and so much more. Click here to subscribe for updates, and if you have an event you’d like to submit for Calendar inclusion consideration, please submit it here.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at email@example.com.
