Event description

Description


On January 22 & 23, 2018, hundreds of New York State's immigrant community leaders will converge in Albany for the first-ever New York Immigration Coalition Member Congress: Strengthening Immigrant NY.

The New York Immigration Coalition envisions a New York State that is stronger because all people are welcome, treated fairly, and given the chance to pursue their dreams.

The Member Congress will unite NYIC members and partner organizations from all corners of the state to design and build the statewide strategy and movement needed to achieve our vision together.

Strengthening Immigrant NY will be a two day collaborative process dedicated to deep dives into priority issues, policy solutions, advocacy strategies, and power building. This process builds upon the input gathered from members, partners, and community leaders through NYIC regional round tables, member surveys, and countless conversations with stakeholders across New York and the United States.

We hope to leave the Congress a stronger coalition with a shared blueprint to guide our movement together over the next five years. Your voice and experience is critical to our collective success. We look forward to seeing you there!

Member Congress rates are as follows. NYIC Members enjoy a substantially discounted rate to the Member Congress. If your organization is not a current NYIC Member, you can apply for or renew your organization's Membership starting December 13.

Organizations that apply for or renew their NYIC Membership by January 31, 2018, can get 10% off the NYIC Membership rate for 2018. For questions about your organization's membership status, contact membership@nyic.org.



Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can I send from my organization?
Due to space restrictions, the first two representatives from each organization will be prioritized. Please contact membership@nyic.org if you feel that a larger delegation will be necessary.

What is the general schedule?
Day 1, January 22, is for member organization leadership to build strategy. The day begins at noon and ends at 6:30pm with an optional reception afterward.

Day 2, January 23, we will lobby at the capital. The day begins at 9:00am for those who joined us the previous day and at 10:30am for everyone lobbying. The day ends at 4:30pm. A seperate Eventbrite invitation will be shared for those joing only to lobby.

Is financial assistance available? Is there a deadline for requests?
Limited assistance is available to NYIC members with budgets under $250k. NYIC will provide 1 night of lodging to selected NYIC members to help offset travel costs. Members who would like to be considered must complete a request form. Please contact membership@nyic.org with additional questions. The deadline to request is December 15, 2017.

Where should I look for lodging?
We have a room block with discounted rooms at Renaissance Albany for January 22. Members need to share our name when booking. These rooms MUST be reserved by January 9, 2018. Strengthening Immigrant NY occurs during a legislative session, and hotel rooms will be very difficult to book last-minute.

I am not associated with an organization - can I still attend?
This event is only open to representatives of member and partner organizations of the NYIC.
