Youth Picnic Recap

Last Saturday, JFA held a picnic in Queensbridge Park.

There was plenty of food, music & good company..


..and performances by our youth!

We also asked community members to complete two statements: 

  1. My favorite thing about my community is…
  2. My Community needs… 

Community members had a lot of responses.

Their favorite thing about their community included: low, sweet people, the park, the community, low income housing, my family, the children, the elder people, diversity, programs for youth & hope. 

Their community needs included: respect, investment, more parks and schools, a swimming pool, new buildings, no violence, and unity & kindness.

There were a few other quotes that are worth mentioning, though they didn’t speak directly to the prompts given: 

  • Knowledge is power!!!
  • Love is the one thing that will bring us together. 
  • I love Queens always!

We thank everyone for joining us, and communing with us, and we hope to see you at our upcoming events!
