EQA is a federation of civic organizations in Southeast Queens, NY, advocating for an improved quality of life for all residents within our communities and surrounding areas. We do this by reaching out to those living and working within our communities to learn about the concerns and issues they would like to see addressed and resolved and ultimately about their ideas and vision for a thriving Southeast Queens.
With the support of engaged community members, we work with relevant agencies and elected officials to advocate for that which will sustain and improve our quality of life, with a strong emphasis on achieving a true balance among the three prongs of sustainability– social, economic, and environmental health.
Together, we are: Speaking truth! Speaking truth to power! Working for a sustainable Southeast Queens!
At EQA takes positions on various topics and subjects that are of critical concern to our communities that fall under our Areas of Emphasis. They include topics such as environmental preservation, environmental justice, health, community planning, sustainability, and any other topics that we believe are important to life in our communities. See our white paper, “A Comprehensive Plan—Maximizing Quality of Life in Southeast Queens,” published in 2005, for an overall discussion of the quality of life issues in our community.
