NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – The members of the Diversity Committee attended the Tuesday, April 12 council meeting to request the use of Centennial Park on June 25 for the 4th Annual Race Unity Day. New Providence High School students are leading the event and it is sponsored by the Diversity Committee.

This is the second year in a row that youth leaders are taking the reigns of organizing the event, Diversity Committee Sunil Abrol said. The goal of the event is to bring various cultures together and promote diversity. The program includes a series of dance and song performances representing different cultures. Discussion series are also offered and attendees can go around to different booths to learn about various groups or attend activities.

The event will run from 1 pm to 4 pm. The council unanimously approved the group’s request to use Centennial Park. “We look forward to attending,” Mayor Al Morgan said.
