Being Better Neighbors was founded to support our Erie neighbors of color, and to create a place for civil discourse and outreach to bring awareness to issues facing people of color and other marginalized communities.
BEING BETTER NEIGHBORS
Being Better Neighbors is a non-profit organization established to embrace Erie’s growing diversity and to ensure we live in a welcoming and inclusive town.
The three pillars to our work are:
Community Building: encouraging partnerships between residents and town officials to promote diversity, equity, inclusion and community safety.
Education & Youth Programs: working with schools/other youth program providers to ensure they have the tools and resources they need to provide a safe, welcoming atmosphere for all kids in our town.
Cultural Events & Outreach: promoting diversity and cultural awareness through events, member engagement, and educational programming.
