Together Because Plans Sunset Park Community Cookout

There is no other way that I’d like to celebrate the 4th of July then by breaking bread with this incredibly diverse group of people and putting our heads together to figure out how we will take action to improve our communities. At a time when the independence of so many is increasingly threatened, curtailed, or repealed, Together Because reminds me that there are others in NYC who are ready to relate, educate, and strategize.

On Monday night, leaders from Together Because gathered to plan our upcoming Sunset Park Cookout. Over pizza, we looked at a map of the neighborhood and divvied up tasks like: outreach to the churches and mosques, developing our social media campaign, and street canvassing.  

Our objective is simple: We want to pool our dues money in order to cook boatloads of food while meeting with more Sunset Park residents and chatting about what they want from their community. 

We're confident that with the talented TBC leaders we have working on this cookout, it will be a major next step in our Together Because: Sunset Park grant project!
