At 10:00 AM on Thursday, June 5th, join me on Kingston Avenue between Winthrop Street and Rutland Road as we kickoff the Cycle to Break the Cycle of Teen Dating Violence, an event that has been dedicated to the kidnapped schoolgirls of Nigeria.
I’m proud to serve as honorary chairperson of this event organized by Jonah Village, in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation Office of Education and Outreach.
For more information, contact Jonah Village by calling (347) 432-4617 or by e-mailing roslynb@jonahvillage.org
Later that morning, at 11:30 AM, head over to Borough Hall Plaza for the launch of Brooklyn Day, a celebration of sports and the upcoming summer season. We will march together to the newly-opened Pier 2 of Brooklyn Bridge Park, where there will be free sports clinics and fitness drills, rain or shine, from 12:30 PM until 3:00 PM.
In addition to Brooklyn Bridge Park, I’m pleased to be joined on this event by the Brooklyn Nets, New York Islanders, Royal Palms Shuffleboard, Team First and Wallball World.
Finally, from 5:30 PM until 8:00 PM, I invite you to the Brooklyn Borough Hall courtroom for my Safety + Awareness Event, where you can participate in hands-on workshops provided by our partners, focusing on self-defense for children and adults as well as best practices for home safety.
I’m grateful to New York Life for co-sponsoring this opportunity, as well as to our partners, including the FDNY, NYPD, OEM Ready New York and WMA Karate.
Share the word about all of these events, and I’ll see you for one or more on June 5th!
-Eric
