What Does the Future Hold for New York's Immigrants?

Presented by Women's City Club of New York


Will the fall elections bring changes for New York’s immigrants? Can New York City’s immigrant friendly policies mitigate the failures to act by our national and state governments? We’ve invited two women who have followed immigration issues most closely to speculate on the answers to these questions. Nisha Agarwal, Commissioner of the New York City Office of Immigrant Affairs, will introduce us to the many City-sponsored programs that help immigrants, including the brand new municipal identification card. Jacki Esposito is the founder of Inspire Group, a government relations and public affairs firm based in New York City. Ms. Esposito will discuss the chances of the passage of national immigration reform and of enactment by the state legislature of the NY State DREAM Act. Date: Thursday, November 6, 2014 Time: 6:00pm Location: Stella and Charles Guttman Community College (50 West 40th Street) The event is free and open to the public but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

“Purchase of Manhattan” – World Premiere of Concert Opera

Presented by Marble Collegiate Church


The Lenape Center and Collegiate Churches of New York Host the World Premiere of a New Concert Opera, “Purchase of Manhattan." The groundbreaking opera tells the untold story of how the early Dutch settlers of what was then New Netherland unjustly “purchased” the island of Manhattan from the Lenape people, supposedly for 60 guilders or the modern equivalent of $24. From the perspective of the Lenape, whose culture did not operate on the concept of land ownership, the opera explores the myth of the island’s sale. The project follows a formal, 400-year- old acknowledgement made by the Collegiate Churches of New York, formerly the First Dutch Reform Church, to the Lenape in 2009, recognizing their founders’ role in displacing the native peoples from Manhattan in the 1600s.
