Tomorrow morning, Melissa will serve as Keynote Speaker at a special event to announce the launch of the Make the Road Action Fund, a sister organization of Make the Road New York. The Action Fund will seek to build political power rooted in working class Latino communities, promote policy solutions that improve the lives of all New Yorkers and strengthen the movement for justice through electoral organizing and strategic alliances to advance progressive change in New York City.
Make the Road New York, is one of the largest community based organizations in the city that has helped to win so many victories over the years for immigrant and LGBT New Yorkers. They have partnered with our office on a number of campaigns and pieces of legislation, including the Multiple Dwelling Registration bill, which is likely to pass at the end of this month.
The event will be held tomorrow, July 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Campanile Restaurant (30 E. 29th Street, Manhattan). For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, please visit www.maketheroadactionfund.org.
