Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Below you will find information on two programs that my office is co-sponsoring over the next few days. The first program will focus on the City resources available to immigrant business owners, and the second will be a “Know Your Rights” training as related to our every-day interactions with The New York Police Department.

My office has continuously explored the resources available to ensure that residents of District 38 are equipped with the tools to interact with government in a new and unprecedented way. These upcoming events will serve as a launching pad.

Attached are fliers for both events in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Please share widely.
In solidarity,
Immigrant-Owned Business: Resources Town Hall
TOMORROW, Thursday, November 20th at 7pm at the Sunset Park Recreation Center, The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, The Department of Consumer Affairs, The Department of Small Business Services, The Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, and my Office will be hosting an informational panel that will detail the available City resources for immigrant business owners.
This town-hall meeting is a unique opportunity to speak directly with city-wide and borough-wide officials on how the City of New York—and Brooklyn, specifically—are responding to needs of this particular business community. This will also provide space to share ideas on how each office can better reach, and serve you.
“Know Your Rights” Training:
Please join The Legal Aid Society, The Center for Family Life, and my office for a “KNOW YOUR RIGHTS” Training on Saturday, November 22nd at 2pm. 
This is an opportunity to ensure that residents are knowledgeable about their rights, and understand what a police interaction should, and should not, feel like. Part of the conversation will be dedicated to addressing questions around NYPD security cameras. I invite you to participate in what I know will be a learning process for all, and what will promote the safe streets we continue to advocate for. 
The Legal Aid Society’s Mobile Justice Unit will be parked outside of PS1 from 2pm-5pm that day. The Mobile Unit will be staffed by Legal Aid attorneys who can begin to assist residents with their legal questions and concerns.

As always, please reach out to my office with questions.
