Hello Bernal and Excelsior Community! Just a reminder!
I hope this email finds you well! Im sure you all have been waiting patiently for this event. It’s finally here – time for BHNC’s Annual Community Congress! We hope to see you all tomorrow from 9:00am-1:00pm here at Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center.
BHNC’s Community Congress has been put together in our neighborhood since the 80’s. It is a space for us to discuss, strategize and create platforms for proactive progress and change in our neighborhoods! We’re very excited that this year’s Congress is focused on building relationships with everyone in the community, how we all can support each other, youth, seniors and their families going through different issues – especially in the face of a changing city.
Community Congress is BHNC’s premier event geared towards sharing the progressive work that is going on, and getting community input to guide all of our work in the coming years. There will be break out sessions that will be facilitated by our own community leaders, senior staff, neighbors to help guide some of the work that we will continue to do in the neighborhood together. A few workshops are the important and on going discussion about what community policing truly means in our neighborhood, how we can build a better relationship with our seniors in the community, and housing anti-displacement. All of these can have a serious effect in our neighborhood, in our families, in our future. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
I am calling all community members to spend this time with the neighborhood! It is critical that all neighbors are present and that every community is represented. This is our chance to come together and make sure no voice goes unheard especially at this time in the face of a changing city. Community Congress is a vehicle that brings the true spirit of collaboration and community to our neighborhood, and now more than ever we need everyone to get behind the wheel! I am looking forward to seeing you all there!!
