Immigrants’ rights are under attack both nationwide and here in Long Island. Myths and misinformation are fueling this civil rights crisis. The New York Civil Liberties Union is countering those myths with facts, and we need your help.
Next Monday evening in Manhasset, the NYCLU’s Nassau County and Suffolk County chapters will kick off a year-long public education campaign on immigrants’ rights with “From Nassau to the North Fork: Immigrants’ Rights on 21st Century Long Island,” the first in a series of three community conversations to discuss the truth about immigrants.
Come share your stories, questions and concerns. Together, we’ll discuss how immigrants strengthen our community, learn how anti-immigrant laws and policies affect all Long Islanders, and talk with neighbors and new friends over some delicious food.
The community conversation will start at 7 p.m. the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock, 48 Shelter Rock Road in Manhasset. The congregation's Social Justice Committee is cosponsoring the event.
