International Women’s Day

Hi all! Today is International Women’s Day, which has been celebrated every year on March 8th since 1977.

Around the world, women have always lacked rights and/or equal treatment. Even today, women are paid less than men, on average. In addition, women in almost every country lack full freedom to choose what they do with their own bodies when it comes to the issue of abortion.

Women’s Day invites us to recognize that this is wrong, and work towards reaching the day when full equality can be achieved.

Immigrants’ Rights Workshop

We had another immigrants’ rights workshop this Tuesday. This time, it was presented by the New York Immigration Coalition for our 3A and Culture Club students. Our students learned about updated COVID-19 vaccination and immigration system and rights. Some of the students expressed their gratitude for the new and useful information at the end of the workshop. The NYIC will be back to have the same workshops for our 3P and Evening students in February.

Immigrants’ Rights Workshops

Our CCR students had workshops about immigrants’ rights, also known as KYR(Know Your Rights) workshops presented by our new partner, Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement. They learned about their rights as immigrants, as well as updated changes to immigration policy and the social services available to them. With the current COVID surge, we shifted our workshop location from in-person to online temporarily because we should know about our rights no matter what situations we are in!
