Flyer announcing the second town-wide One Hillsborough event on 29 April 2024One Hillsborough, a cross-cultural community advocacy coalition since 2018, in collaboration with the Hillsborough Y, invites all Hillsborough citizens to its second town-wide platform for community conversations to be held on April 29th, 2024, from 5:30–7:30 PM at the Hillsborough Y located at 19 East Mountain Rd, Hillsborough. Catered dinner will be served, again courtesy of the HEA Pride Committee.

One Hillsborough’s first event in January of 2023 discussed the functioning of local government, public safety, education, and community involvement. This time, this ongoing community effort focuses on the many faith communities that make up Hillsborough. Various youth groups and faith communities will give short presentations, to be followed by open conversations along the following lines:

  • How can faith communities in Hillsborough promote productive dialogue during these difficult and divided times and make everyone feel safe and loved?
  • What services do Houses of Worship provide to the community directly?
  • What activities are there for young people/youths in our Houses of Worship?
  • How can Hillsborough’s faith leaders be present and available to the wider community?
  • Ideas for Houses of Worship to collaborate displaying our unity and connections in a creative meaningful way? (i.e. cookbook, poetry, dance)

One Hillsborough is committed to continuing to develop and host this new platform for civic engagement to structurally provide forums and channels to broaden access and opportunity for all who reside within the township, particularly those from underrepresented and unheard groups. The principal objective is to promote equal communication with all community services providers and organizations without the boundaries of race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, or political affiliation.

All are welcome to share in the goodwill that begins with basic conversations seeking to live up to the reputation of one of “the best places to live” for everyone…
