Standing With Our Immigrant Neighbors


This group has been working closely with Council Member Carlos Menchaca, the New York Immigration Coalition and Make the Road New York, with a focus on immigrants in the Sunset Park community.

Members of this group will be working to support and defend our immigrant neighbors. Our efforts include:  

  • Creating a directory of lawyers and social workers.
  • Hosting community dinners.
  • Creating a Craigslist-like list of translators.
  • Offering certified Adult Education classes for citizenship.
  • Raising funds to cover citizenship fees.
  • Providing conversation buddies and Spanish classes.
  • Training and participating in civil disobedience.
  • Researching the Sanctuary Movement.

Current Projects

Host a Welcome to the Table fundraising party and subsidize costs for an immigrant seeking citizenship. Find out how.
