Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC’s Justice for Immigrants Program (JFI) exists to empower, educate, and involve our immigrant community. Through popular education workshops, civic participation, and local outreach, JFI at CIS-NYC moves from words to action, from charity to justice. Immigrants and supporters are encouraged to use their voices and to recognize their power to be active agents of change regardless of their immigration status.
Past activities of JFI have included lobby days in both Washington D.C. and Albany, New York; rallies in New York City, D.C., and Albany; meetings with local representatives; educational workshops about immigrant rights, housing, and other important issues; and collecting signatures for petitions to fight “stop and frisk” and to support the DREAM Act and immigration reform.
Currently, JFI workshops and meeting are being held virtually on Zoom and Facebook Live. To attend our bi-weekly membership meetings contact our Community Organizer, Zelene, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-791-4590 ext. 105.
Most of our past workshops can be viewed on Facebook and YouTube. Follow us on social media for updates about upcoming workshops and events!
