Brooklyn Community Pride Center

By Charlotte Robinson, December 19, 2020

Brooklyn Community Pride Center has announced that Sonelius Kendrick-Smith has been named the new president of the Center's board of directors. Sonelius first joined the board in 2016 & has been serving as treasurer & chair of the governance committee. He's head of corporate treasury & taxable fixed income solutions for DWS a majority owned subsidiary of Deutsche Bank & brings a vision of continuing their work to help build Brooklyn Community Pride Center into the borough's premiere place for LGBTQ people to celebrate, heal, learn, create, organize, relax, socialize & play. Floyd Rumohr, CEO Brooklyn Community Pride Center stated, "Sonelius's passion for & commitment to our shared vision at Brooklyn Community Pride Center is exemplary. As chair of our governance committee, Sonelius has developed structures to build our governance capacity & is already leading the charge in his new role to help us raise significant resources that will sustain & grow the organization through converging crises toward a brighter future for LGBTQ+ Brooklynites." Sonelius steps into this new leadership role at a pivotal time in Brooklyn Community Pride Center's history. As they close out a year made difficult by the pandemic they are also weeks away from opening their new headquarters in Crown Height's Bedford-Union Armory. After signing the 30-year lease in February 2020 the public opening of the new location which will also include an LGBTQ focused mental health clinic operated by Callen-Lorde is now anticipated to take place in March or April 2021. The Center will retain the Restoration Plaza location as the first of several satellite sites.                For More Info: lgbtbrooklyn.org
