The Mission of the Borough of Fair Lawn Community Relations Advisory Committee is to educate, advocate and promote inclusion, inter group understanding, compassion and respect for diversity in our community.
The Committee was established in 2020 in response to the many anti-Semitic hate crimes that occurred in 2019 across our country, particularly the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburg.
Key achievements include creating and selling Hate Has No Home in Fair Lawn lawn signs (see below) as a way to spread awareness about our committee's mission. We have hosted a Pride Block Party and flag raising , Holi celebration, multiple community read programming,
We are currently focused on creating programming and providing information to Fair Lawn residents to help understand systemic racism and what we can do to be more anti-racist. We are also looking to establish partnerships with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to provide programming on anti-Semitism and learn how we can be allies to the Jewish community.
The committee has 13 members, with Deputy Mayor Cristina Cutrone serving as our liaison to the town council. For more information, or to share community concerns or ideas, please visit the Fair Lawn Community Relations Advisory Committee's Facebook page (@FairLawnInclusion) or send an email to FairLawnCRA@gmail.com.
