On Wednesday October 7th, Catholic Migration Services held their first monthly community meeting at St. Joseph’s Parish in Bushwick. There were over 80 Bushwick residents in attendance who heard from several community legal services organizations in the area.
Catholic Migration Services partnered with the law firm Virginia & Ambinder, LLP to give a training on basic labor rights. Our Housing Program Coordinator Kenny Minaya, and Senior Organizer Yolanda Coca, provide housing legal services to low-income tenants in the Bushwick and Ridgewood neighborhoods, holding legal clinics and tenant organizing meetings.
