The Center for Community and Ethnic Media at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs jointly organized a briefing to inform immigrant New Yorkers of their rights and of Mayor Bill de Blasio and MOIA’s commitment to connecting all immigrant New Yorkers to key city services as well as programs like IDNYC, ActionNYC, and ActionHealthNYC, which address needs that are specific to immigrant communities. The event was held at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism on July 7.

Commissioner Agarwal was joined by Steven Ettannani, senior advisor at the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, New York City Council Member Mathieu Eugene and Giovanni Bueno, a New York City resident who received free legal services from Make the Road New York (MRNY) as part of ActionNYC, at the press briefing.
