Thank you for joining us for another week in review.
We hope everyone had a fun and safe long weekend in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Dr. King's activism and ministry were instrumental during the Civil Rights Movement and his legacy continues to live on through all of us. Every day, I am reminded that we are working towards fulfilling his dream. Thank you to all who joined us yesterday for our Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration and Union Grove Missionary Baptist Church for their continued partnership.
In the coming weeks, we will announce the date of our State of the Borough, which will outline our vision for 2023 and beyond, the re-launch of our Community Board application, upcoming community events, Bronx Week, and so much more.
Our office is also working in partnership with the American Red Cross to “sound the alarm” on fire safety in our borough. For a free smoke detector installation, you can call our office at (718) 590-3500 or visit soundthealarm.org/nyc.
January is also Human Trafficking Awareness Month. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a Human Trafficking workshop hosted by Not on My Watch to learn how to identify possible warning signs and how to support survivors of trafficking.

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 email@example.com.
