Long Island: Coming to the Table

Long Island is home to many advocacy groups fighting for a better world – and it is one of the most segregated and unequal regions in the country. How did we get here, and what can we do about it? In this series, participants explored the nuts and bolts of doing legislative and budget advocacy at the state level, how to get ready for 2021, the policy choices that have led to structural inequalities in Long Island, and current campaigns that seek to address these inequalities. These sessions brought to the table advocates from diverse issue areas and different regions across the island.
