Dear Neighbor,

 

Thank you for joining us for another week in review!


Please be sure to join us this Wednesday, at 6:30PM at Rosa's at Parks for Pride in the Boogie Down, an 80's-themed celebration of all things Pride. Dress in your best 80's attire for a night of dancing and festivities. We hope to see you there!


Last week, the devastating wildfires in Canada filled our New York City air with smoke. These wildfires, caused by lighting and exacerbated by a dry, arid spring, are a jarring reminder of the effects of climate change. We must act now if we are to leave our future generations a habitable planet. However, air quality conditions caused by smoke from Canadian wildfires have improved in New York City, and there is no health advisory in effect for the current air quality index forecast.

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 webmail@bronxbp.nyc.gov.


 

In partnership,

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson


IN THE COMMUNITY

The energy was electric today in Manhattan as we walked in the Annual Puerto Rican Day parade! Our Puerto Rican community continues to pour into our borough in so many ways and we are so grateful for their contributions to The Bronx.


¬°Que Viva Puerto Rico!

I was so proud to join with Council Member Althea Stevens to present a check of one million dollars to Jordan L. Mott MS 22 Campus to renovate the auditorium for our young scholars at MS 22, the Bronx Writing Academy and Success Academy Bronx 2!


Thank you to our Principals Rivera, Hassan and Aquino, our community partners and the team for your dedication to our students and families!

I was proud to join with our nurses in support of pay equity. Our public hospital sector nurses are unified, fired up and ready for the best contract. Our nurses need contracts that respect and uplift their life-saving work.


They deserve a contract that prioritizes adequate pay and safe staffing. New York City nurses have stood by our side during our most challenging times, and we must continue to support them in this fight for compensation and protection.
