Pro-immigrant Action @ the Suffolk Legislature 9/16

On September 16th, Long Islanders from all walks of life will hold a day of action, at the Suffolk County Legislature to demand that it end the surge of divisive bills introduced in the legislature over the past three years and instead mandate legislation that promotes practical solutions that work for everyone.

Representatives from LI Business, Labor, Health Care, Housing, among others, will report on how the integration of our new neighbors not only creates opportunities for all Suffolk residents but indeed helps to build an Island of Opportunities.

“We are tired of the negative rhetoric; give Suffolk County a chance to get it right,” said Nadia Marin-Molina (Workplace Project). “That is why Long Islanders are taking action to make visible the contributions of our new arrivals.”
