Rochester Immigrant Issues Convening

Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 N Fitzhugh Street | Rochester, NY

Please join the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and co-hosts the Greater Rochester Coalition for Immigrant Justice and the Worker Justice Center of New York for a convening on immigrant issues in the Rochester region. The NYIC is an umbrella advocacy organization for over 150 organizations that work with immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers in New York. The goals of this convening are to share the NYIC’s Statewide Immigrant Equality Agenda and to hear from Rochester groups that work with immigrants about the issues affecting your communities.  Breakfast will be provided. We hope you can join us!
