Sunnyside Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Committee

The DEIA Committee circled back to ways we could get involved with the Sunnyside community and our role in participating in the upcoming Belmont Street Fair. The committee is working to make local resources more available to the public. We’re looking into how we can make sure apartment buildings get access to the monthly Sunnyside newsletter to stay informed and get involved in neighborhood initiatives. We reached out to the Kids Center March for Black Lives Matter organizers to see how we can support their efforts and collaborate together. We’re also working to establish an outreach program to reach out to BIPOC businesses within Sunnyside to see how we can provide support, if wanted. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, September 7th at 6:30 p.m. Virtual meeting details will be posted on the SNA website on September 2nd. The DEIA Committee meets every 1st Tuesday of the month. We look forward to new attendees and welcome ideas on ways to grow this committee.
