Sullivan Renaissance is engaging Sullivan County’s African American leaders in ongoing discussions about community needs and neighborhood improvement projects. Representatives from Cornell Cooperative Extension, Dialogue2Change, EB Crawford Library, Monticello Central School, NAACP, New Beginnings Worship Center, SUNY Sullivan, Sullivan Renaissance, community volunteers and interested residents have been meeting to share information and establish mutual goals.
The African American Outreach Committee is part of the Sullivan Renaissance Multicultural Program which furthers the organization’s commitment to being inclusive and accessible to all residents of Sullivan County. “There is a need to understand the diverse population of Sullivan County, and help everyone feel welcomed and appreciated. We are more alike than different, and we begin to realize this when we share our stories and discuss our own past and envision the future of our children” said Ari Mir-Pontier, Multicultural Program Manager.
The African American Outreach Committee will join forces with local volunteers and community members to coordinate a project to commemorate the Elder African American Women of Sullivan County. The project is slated for completion by August 2017.
