We communicate. We organize. We bring people together and advocate for change.
Representing all Long Islanders, we work to shift the debate about immigrants and immigration policy on Long Island and to educate Long Islanders about sensible policies that work for and will benefit everyone.
Our goal is to highlight the contributions of immigrants in our community, enhance public perception of immigrants, and build support for immigration initiatives that maximize immigrants’ contributions for the benefit of all Long Islanders. This includes support for comprehensive immigration reform – a bill that would make long overdue changes to an outdated immigration system. And it includes local solutions that mean a more welcoming Long Island. We know that immigration can work—if we have the right policies.
Immigrants come to Long Island from all over the world – Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America—to work hard and take care of their families. They are vital contributors to Long Island’s economy and cultural diversity.
We provide research and commentary, shape public engagement, and organize Long Islanders working towards a common goal. This website—especially our blog—is host to many of Long Island Wins’ activities. Here we provide local and national immigration news, and online organizing tools to help Long Islanders create change that will respect the rights of all.
