A local leader wants Queens residents feeling stuck in the wake of the presidential election to express themselves via sticky note.
Assemblywoman Nily Rozic is encouraging community members to visit her Fresh Meadows office and participate in her adaptation of the sticky note project: a movement meant to give residents an outlet to air their worries or thoughts.
Participants are invited to express their thoughts or wishes by writing on neon-colored sticky notes and posting their political statements, meaningful quotes or personal concerns on the office’s storefront window.
The project is an adaptation of the public sticky note displays that have been popping up around New York City post-election. Participants write their concerns or feelings regarding the victory of President-elect Donald Trump on notes and stick them to a public wall.
Known as “Subway Therapy,” the movement began in the tunnel that connects the 14th Street station at Seventh Avenue and Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan and was initiated by artist Matthew “Levee” Chavez.
“People should have an opportunity to express themselves and remind everyone that we are a strong and united community,” Rozic said. “I want to give everyone a small outlet to express their post-election thoughts, grief, confusion and responses moving forward.”
Rozic’s office is located at 159-16 Union Tpke. and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
