Being a community is about the people, the businesses, and the environment. Tonight at the ANC 7B06 focus group potluck we talked about the need to build relationships between the residents and the business owners. Many of the retails business owners in our shopping centers (Skyland, Good Hope, Fairfax Village & Fort Davis) are of Asian decedent. The differences in culture can sometimes lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings.
I come home and see flyers for two events in my mailbox related to building one neighborhood to celebrate Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. I encourage residents to attend these events to learn more about the cultures and how we can bridge relationships with the business owners in our community.
