The board of the Longfellow Area Neighborhood Association mourns the death of George Floyd and the many others who have died due to racial injustice. We reject systematic failures that cause inequalities. We invite LANA members and neighbors to join the discussion of what we can do to make our neighborhood welcoming and safe for everyone. Our next meeting will be on Zoom, on July 13 th at 7:00. In the meantime, we welcome your comments.
