Our Mission: To strengthen the whole community by actively enhancing the healthy integration of immigrants
Make sure to pick up a copy of The Record-Review this week to read a great op-ed by Sabrina Tuquinagui, a Paralegal at Neighbors Link. She has written a deeply personal and compelling column about her family's experience and the need to pass #AccesstoRepresentation and #NY4All
We are here today in Albany because freelancers, cash workers, immigrants and people in re-entry are RECLAIMING their right to the safety net.
And we aren’t going to give up until our demands are included in the budget.
We are keeping up the fight until we are #ExcludedNoMore!
“This amazing group of folks here, is a real view of what NY is, a cultural diversity, intergenerational movement of working class people.”
Assemblymember @marcelaforny has been w/ us since 6 AM demanding @GovKathyHochul include excluded workers in the budget. #ExcludedNoMore
📽️NEW: Yesterday, hundreds of immigrant advocates rallied to demand passage of the #AccesstoRepresentation Act!
Immigrant NYers who can’t afford to hire an attorney are forced to represent themselves in court—regardless of age.
@GovKathyHochul, THIS AIN’T RIGHT!
Everyone in immigration court deserves access to legal representation. #ARA

🚨Happening Now: We are in Albany with one message: NYers need #AccesstoRepresentation!
As final budget negotiations happen, @GovKathyHochul must prioritize #CARE4IF.

Thank you, Dina, for sharing your story of fleeing danger and receiving political asylum with help from Neighbors Link. Having a lawyer makes all the difference. As final budget negotiations happen,
@GovKathyHochul must prioritize #AccesstoRepresentation
“Through friends of mine, I obtained a phone number of an organization about 40 minutes from my home. They told me they would not be able to help me due to their vast number of pending cases ...”
TY Dina and @NeighborsLink for sharing your odyssey for legal representation. #ARA
