Today, Over 700 Immigrant Families Gather to Celebrate President Obama's Historic Executive Order and Launch the Campaign for Respect & Dignity

The Campaign for Respect & Dignity is an ambitious effort to increase voter participation and promote a platform of priorities for immigrant and working class New York.

More than 30 elected officials, including most major candidates for Mayor, and representatives of City, State, and Federal government will be present to hear and respond to immigrant New Yorkers' priorities, and to react to impending Supreme Court's announcement on Arizona's SB1070.

WHAT: Make the Road New York (MRNY), New York State's largest membership-led, community-based organization will host its 4th Annual Community Assembly. 

Undocumented students who stand to benefit from President Obama's new work permits policy will join hundreds of immigrant and LGBTQ New Yorkers to celebrate this historic victory, and launch the Campaign for Respect & Dignity, which will mobilize thousands of Latino voters who support immigration reform, protection of workers' rights, paid sick leave and an end to discriminatory stop-and-frisk policing. People of all ages will share their stories with elected officials from every level of government.

 

Members of MRNY will present the organization's "Platform for Respect and Dignity" and hear responses from the elected officials. 

 

Musical performances will complement the substantive policy portion of the event. Balloons, signs, and flags will fill the auditorium.

 

WHEN: Saturday, June 23 at 2:00pm

 

WHERE: Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square Park South, Manhattan
