Attend the community meeting for "Danny Chen Way," June 25

Last week, I wrote about OCA-NY's efforts to drum up public support for the co-naming of a New York Chinatown street, "Danny Chen Way," in memory of the Chinese American soldier who was found dead after enduring weeks of hazing abuse while serving in Afghanistan.

On June 11, the Transportation Committee of Community Board 3 unanimously voted for the new name: 'Danny Chen Way' Street Renaming Wins Support from Community Board.

But there's more work to be done. The street co-naming still needs to be approved during Community Board 3's full board meeting next week. After that, it will go to the City Council for a vote.

If you can make it out, OCA-NY is asking supporters to attend the public meeting on Tuesday, June 25 at 6:30pm at PS 20, 166 Essex Street. For further information, email Ivy Pan at vypan94@gmail.com.
