Civic Engagement Series: Make the Road
Greenlight’s new Civic Engagement Series takes place on the last Monday of each month and hosts nonprofit groups working in social justice, community organizing, and the arts, with the goal of providing tools for community involvement and support to those doing necessary work in our culture. 20% of all book sales on the entire day of the event will be donated to the featured organization, and an option for direct donation will be available at the event. For May, Greenlight hosts Make the Road, a Brooklyn-based organization that builds the power of working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and survival services. MRNY’s advocacy and litigation work affect millions of working class New Yorkers at the city and statewide levels, and increasingly at the federal level, and their recent work on behalf of immigrants has brought them into the public eye like never before. All are welcome to attend this free and interactive event.
