Project Envision, a initiative run by the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault, wants to get the word out about an open house they’re holding tomorrow night. The organization was one of many groups that took part in last month’s public forum regarding the sexual assault of a child at the Seward Park Library.
Project Envision has conducted a study in the neighborhood in preparation for developing a sexual violence prevention program on the Lower East Side and two other communities. Recently, the city decided to cut more than $300,000 in funding from the organization’s prevention programs.
According to Project Envision coalition leader Jessy LaHood, the open house is meant to continue the dialogue started at the June 6th forum, and encourage feedback about key issues the program can and should address.
The open house will be held at the 6th Street Community Center, 638 East 6th Street, from 530-730pm. To RSVP, envision-LES@svfreenyc.org envision-LES@svfreenyc.org
