SULLIVAN RENAISSANCE EMBRACES SULLIVAN COUNTY’S DIVERSITY

March 16, 2017

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance’s Multicultural Program is progressing in its efforts toward community engagement and awareness through new grant opportunities, focused efforts to engage diverse communities, enhanced outreach in South Fallsburg and continued work in Liberty. Two new grant programs offer support for outreach and resources for projects in multicultural neighborhoods. 

South Fallsburg will be the focus of business and residential beautification through Main Street revitalization and community enhanced pilot projects. A Sullivan Renaissance Community Brainstorming meeting will take place on Sunday, April 2nd, at 3pm in the South Fallsburg Youth & Senior Center at 12 Laurel Avenue. The community is invited to identify potential project sites, offer creative ideas and sign up as volunteers. Call 845-295-2445 to register for this meeting. Refreshments will be served and walk-ins are welcome.

Similar to the genesis of the Bilingual Advisory Committee, a brainstorming session with African-American community leaders will take place to discuss cultural differences and similarities, focus on African-American needs in neighborhoods, and explore ways for greater participation in social and beautification projects around the county.  These cultural exchanges are meant to aid Sullivan Renaissance in outreach efforts, and encourage African-American neighbors to be catalysts in their communities. 

“Sullivan County is a beautiful tapestry of color and ethnicities” said Ari Mir-Pontier, Multicultural Program Manager. “Our diverse cultural traditions, religious practices, and strong family values make the people of Sullivan an invaluable resource in moving our county into a stronger, more unified community”.

The Church Street Pilot Project in Liberty will expand beautification efforts to the surrounding areas. The Community Garden on South Main Street will be enhanced and will have opportunities for additional neighborhood participation.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.  For information, contact 845-295-2445 or www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
