We hope you’ll come out for our final HNBA meeting of the season (before our summer break) on Tuesday, June 14th at 7:00 PM.
To get the Zoom link:
We’ll hear from the Citizens Union about what is on the horizon for redistricting City Council that could change whether or not you are considered part of (central) Harlem or part of East Harlem. Dan (from Citizen’s Union) will talk about what’s on the horizon and how you can add your voice to the mapping changes that are coming.
We’ll also get a follow-up from Wilfredo Lopez on the DSNY’s budget – one that gives significantly more money to the UES compared to East Harlem.
Lastly, we’ll hear from Shawanna Vaughn who is challenging Inez Dickens for State Assembly from her base in Lincoln Houses.

From Kioka Jackson:
Let me start this message by saying thank you to everyone who participated in the National Gun Violence Awareness Event which was in partnership with SAVE/GOSO; East Harlem’s Cure violence program. It was a day that displayed togetherness, love, and hope. Now after we take off our orange shirts and we have finished chanting and marching – what’s next? There is still some work that we have to do on a daily basis. Each of us has a responsibility to do something and we are all absolutely capable of sharing love with our community. Love is the first step toward healing and combatting this public health epidemic that we are facing around the country. Please see a few pictures and a news clip of the day. I am thankful to all of you for your continued support toward making our neighborhood safe.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 15th at 5:45 PM and it will be totally in-person. I will send out a follow-up e-mail letting you know if it will be outdoors or at the Precinct. It all depends on the weather. It is our final meeting for the summer so we planned to have a little bit of a light BBQ; Mix and Mingle. So let’s hope the weather Gods smile on us for that day.
I look forward to seeing you all soon. Look out for a message before the end of this week with further details.
Sincerely and best regards,
