Thanks to all who joined us at our conversation with
Jirandy Martinez from The Community Resource Center.
You were an essential part of bringing our community together!
WHAT WE LEARNED FROM OUR
LATINX NEIGHBORS
and HOW TO MAKE AN IMPACT!
  • Domestic Workers Deserve a Voice!

They can suffer wage theft, exposure to toxic materials and unreasonable work hours. Domestic workers should no longer be an invisible work force but embraced as an important part of our community's eco system.

LEARN about the Domestic Worker's Bill of Rights Movement!

PLEDGE to be an ethical employer!

  • All Neighbors, Documented or Undocumented Should Have a Driver's License!

Without access to licenses, immigrants are unable to register and insure their vehicle, obtain and carry valid ID, nor build trust with police. Unlicensed immigrants often risk driving because they lack reasonable public transportation alternatives.

LEARN about the GREEN LIGHT NY!

PLEDGE to support the bill and to educate friends and neighbors throughout NY state, especially in the Long Island area!

  • Count All People, Documented or Undocumented in the 2020 CENSUS!

NY State and non profits in our state do not receive the funding they need if all members of the population are not counted. Representation in local, state and federal government could be impacted if population is undercounted.


PLEDGE to volunteer in outreach and census counting! Sign the petition!

  • Create Legislation for Immigrants to protect them from Rent Burdens

There is no affordable housing for families making between $15,000 and $30,000 per year. Children cannot study effectively in crowded conditions, all inhabitants suffer illnesses from mold and many are prone to sexual abuse in crowded living conditions where tenants double up to afford the rent.

LEARN about local zoning legislation and proposals!

PLEDGE to join a local action housing committee! Ask Jirandy how!
