Several departments from the city were there providing resources like emergency rental assistance and SNAP benefits. A representative KRQE spoke to says the block party is meant to get people involved with their community.
“It’s not about coming once, it’s about a lasting impact,” said Nichole Rogers, for the city’s African American Community and Business Liaison. “And I’m all about equity, so this is to me what equity is – just making sure we are meeting people where they are.”
