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.
