2020 Census is Coming March 12, 2020

posted Feb 12, 2020, 5:29 AM by District 22

Mark your calendars-on Thursday, March 12, the 2020 Census will begin. This year, for the very first time, the questionnaire can be taken online! The form takes no more than five minutes to complete and simply asks:
· How many people live or are staying in your home?
· What is their sex, age, race, and ethnicity?
· Is your home owned or rented?
· What is your home address?

The census does NOT include a citizenship question. Even if someone is undocumented, filling out the census will NOT put them or their family at risk.

Black History Month Celebrations & Events from Council Member Farah Louis

posted Feb 10, 2020, 11:31 AM by District 22   [ updated Feb 10, 2020, 11:34 AM ]

Dear Neighbor,

Every February, we pause to celebrate the contributions and achievements of African-Americans throughout our nation's history. From the arts and sciences to public policy, we have played a tremendous role in shaping our modern-day society.

Black History goes beyond the textbooks and classrooms, it is part of our daily routines and lives. These next three weeks is a great opportunity to explore the names and faces of our pioneers etched throughout our city's museums, memorials, monuments, and parks.

As a member of the New York City Council Black, Latino/a, and Asian Caucus, I am proud of our legislative work to advance the legacy of the courageous heroes and heroines who fought tirelessly for racial equality. We will continue to persist and prevail against the injustices that have hindered our progress as a city, state, and nation. Together, as legislators working in partnership with our constituents, we can bridge the opportunity gap that has disproportionately impacted communities of color.

You are cordially invited to attend a celebration of Black History Month on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at City Hall. Doors will open 5:30PM for guests to enjoy light refreshments followed by a wonderful program full of performances and distinguished honorees.

I hope you will be able to join us and please remember to RSVP for such a special occasion.

“Black history isn’t a separate history. This is all of our history, this is American history, and we need to understand that. It has such an impact on kids and their values and how they view black people.” —Karyn Parsons

Borough Hall Events for Black History Month and More

posted Feb 7, 2020, 5:37 AM by District 22


During Black History Month, we celebrate the resilience and strength of our African-American brothers and sisters - those who came before, and those who are still with us, all engaged in the struggle for justice and equality. In recognition of this important occasion, I want to invite you to two events taking place here at Brooklyn Borough Hall this month. 

In partnership with HBCU Night, we are hosting The Power of HBCU Seats, an event inviting high school students, their parents, and chaperones to have a conversation about Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Join us from 4:00 PM-7:00 PM on Monday, February 10th. and get more information that can help in making an informed post-secondary education decision.

On the 26th, we will host our annual Black History Month event, the theme of which is "Black History's Next Chapter." The event, co-sponsored by MetroPlus, JPMorgan Chase, and NYC & Company Foundation, will feature a keynote speech from Asha Boston, founder and president of The Dinner Table, a non-profit that provides college and career readiness workshops and programming for middle school and high school aged women of color, as well as incoming college freshmen. 
I hope you will join us for these events as we celebrate Black History Month.

P.S. Save the dates for these upcoming events, which I am proud to support, at and around Brooklyn Borough Hall; please contact our office for additional information and visit our Bulletin Board to post items that can be shared across One Brooklyn:
