The DEIA Committee has reached out to the Belmont Business Association to see how we can partner together for the upcoming Belmont Street Fair held on Saturday, September 11th, 2021. The DEIA Committee’s initiative is to help support local BIPOC businesses who would like to participate by providing financial aid for booth participation. The committee plans to help build a stronger awareness of the different Black and Brown owned businesses that support the thriving Belmont strip. We like how the Hawthorne Business Association has developed a cultural calendar to host events for the businesses along the Hawthorne strip and we want to create something similar for Belmont. The DEIA committee would appreciate any suggestions on actions we can take as a developing committee to help uplift and support our BIPOC community. The next meeting will be Tuesday, August 3rd at 6:30 p.m. Virtual meeting details will be posted on the SNA website on July 30th.
