Join us for MRNY's 5th Annual Membership Assembly and Mayoral Candidates Forum

Respeto y dignidadPlease join us this Sunday for MRNY's 5th Annual Membership Assembly and the first ever Mayoral Candidates Forum focused exclusively on the priorities of immigrant and working class New Yorkers.

Over 700 low-wage workers, parents, young people, and immigrant families will gather to present MRNY's "Building a Future with Respect & Dignity" platform to the candidates for NYC Mayor and give them the opportunity to share their stance on our most pressing concerns: workers' rights, education equity, fair policing, LGBTQ equality, economic development, and immigrant integration.

The stakes are high. Working class New Yorkers are struggling more than ever to put food on the table and keep up with skyrocketing cost of living. The next Mayor can choose to use his or her power to expand economic and political opportunity by improving protections for workers, protecting affordable housing, improving public schools, investing in education and training for immigrant adults, and so much more.

We want to make sure that the people running to represent our communities understand the concerns of immigrant and working class New Yorkers. And that's why we kicked off MRNY's Campaign for Respect and Dignity last year, registering over 12,000 new voters across New York City and Long Island, and mobilizing over 19,000 people of color, youth, and immigrants for the 2012 election. We've been educating our elected leaders and leading efforts to win new policies and organizing campaigns that improve the lives people in our communities.

More than ever before, the voices of Latino, working class, and immigrant New Yorkers are poised to make the difference, as they did in the historic Presidential elections of 2012.

So help us make it happen -- we need your voice in this critical moment! 

Join us this Sunday for an exciting gathering: Click here to RSVP for you and your family and help us put your priorities front-and-center for NYC's next Mayor.

See you Sunday at 41-01 Broadway in Astoria, Queens!

-Ana Maria Archila, Co-Executive Director
