JOIN US at our 3rd Annual Labor-Faith Prayer Brunch!

Each year in December, Long Island Jobs with Justice commemorates the anniversary of the Universal Declaration by honoring one champion of human rights right here on Long Island. This year, we are proud to honor the staff of MercyFirst in Syosset. When news broke that over 2,000 refugee children, fleeing poverty, gang violence and persecution in Central America, had arrived on Long Island, MercyFirst was among the first to respond by offering the children shelter, food, education and asylum. MercyFirst did this despite some strong local public opposition. For MercyFrist, recognizing the inherent dignity of the children trumped all other concerns.

Please join us on Tuesday, December 9th, from 10am-12pm, as we celebrate and honor the remarkable humanitarian work of MercyFirst. Register here.

Our speaker for the afternoon will be Patrick Young, Esq., Program Director of the Central American Refugee Center (CARECEN)

The event will be held at the MercyFirst facility (525 Convent Road, Syosset, NY 11791)
