The Lakewood Coalition held its quarterly meeting on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at The Strand Theater. The event featured two speakers: Ehtasham Z. Chaudhry, Detective at the Operations Bureau Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness, who discussed grants for places of worship and the Interfaith Advisory Council (IAC); and Mike Rizol, the Director of the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety, who sought feedback about traffic concerns in the Lakewood area. David Leonardis, from the Division of Criminal Justice at the AG’s office, welcomed the faith leaders in attendance and praised The Lakewood Coalition for their efforts to implement a positive partnership in the community.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, SUPREME CATERERS and CASA DE LA TIA, both located in Lakewood, for generously contributing to our cause. We would also like to thank The Strand Theater for providing us with the venue and supporting our mission. Lastly, we extend our sincere appreciation to our speakers for sharing their knowledge and providing guidance.
