Dear Neighbor,

Thank you for joining us for another week in review!


Last week, we raised the Juneteenth flag at Bronx Borough Hall commemorating the freedom of enslaved people in Texas in 1865, two years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Thank you to everyone who joined us in the celebration of freedom and abolition in our nation!


Be sure to join us this Thursday as we raise up our flag to celebrate the rich Caribbean Heritage of our great borough during our Caribbean Heritage Celebration at 5:30 PM at Code Red, 1320 Gun Hill Rd. We hope to see you there with your flag!


As we prepare for the summer months, we encourage everyone to take precautions and heed the FDNY’s tips for Fire Safety. You can click here for more information.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 718-590-3500 or email us at


In partnership,

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson


On Juneteenth, we commemorate the liberation of enslaved Africans in Texas two years after President Lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Juneteenth flag raising! It was a true honor to stand with you at Borough Hall and raise this symbol of freedom and liberation.

Juneteenth is a reminder of all the work that has been done and still needs to be done to combat oppression in our society.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Pride in the Boogie! Our 80’s-themed celebration of all things Pride was a hit!
