Yes, we could! On Monday, June 17, activists shouted when the New York Senate voted for the Green Light Act, which restored access to driver's licenses to all New Yorkers, regardless of their immigration status. Now it's time to celebrate, and Diana López and Alfredo Pacheco-cruz, from Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson, invited us to the party this Sunday from 1 to 9pm at the Newburgh Armory, to celebrate for a good cause. Admission is $ 20 for adults to raise funds for the grassroots organization Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson to continue fighting for the rights of immigrants in our region.
In addition, today Colombian Laura Montoya, of the Long Spoon Collective (facebook.com/SaugertiesFoodShare) said that on the third Thursday of every month they give away the food that they have harvested in their four shared gardens of Saugerties. They will be next Thursday, July 17, from 5 to 7pm, at 207 Market Street, Saugerties (the Senior center). "The more we give, the more we receive, literally!" Laura said today.
We also had many ideas for the weekend calendar. It feels like Thursday of entertainment and the environment in La Voz with Mariel Fiori.
