In the aftermath of one of the most divisive elections in our country’s history, it is important for us to come together as a town and recommit ourselves to the values of inclusion, diversity, and opportunity. Much can happen at the local level, and we all have a role to play in shaping our community as a place of welcome and support for neighbors in need.
If you have concerns, questions, or are looking for resources to help you, your family, or someone you know, you can contact our local Human Services Department at 609-688-2055. The office is located at 1 Monument Drive.Princeton, NJ. We are learning from residents that there is a need for support services such as counseling and we would like to help you get connected to any assistance possible.
We will be holding a gathering Thursday night, November 10th, at the Princeton Public Library at 6:30 pm in the Community Room. We invite all local leaders, non-profits and community groups to join us in a discussion of how we can all continue to contribute to these efforts. It is important for us to work together to reassure our community of our commitment to maintaining and building a unified Princeton.
