March for #ImmigrantNY

LSA joined the New York Immigration Coalition for a march to protect the rights of immigrant New Yorkers. The NYIC sent a recent email sharing details of the event:

On Sunday, December 18th, we saw 3,000 New Yorkers march to stand up for immigrant communities despite a forecast of heavy rain. It was a testament to the beauty and resilience of our diverse communities, who carried a resounding message of hope down the streets of Manhattan from Dag Hammerskjold Plaza to Trump Tower. As we marched on globally recognized International Migrants Day, hundreds of people joined in, to stand with and protect New York’s immigrant communities against anti-immigrant policies, discrimination and hateful attacks. In fact, #ImmigrantNY became Twitter’s number one trending hashtag and was highlighted on Snapchat with its own channel during the march and rally.

The message went on to thank the 85 sponsoring organizations, of which LSA is one!
